    I would never feed a copper band fruit. There is no need because its not close to their natural diet. At best it wouldn't do anything at worst its body may not know how to properly digest such foods. No way I would risk it with a fish that can already be a challenge to keep

    No I would never feed my copperband or any fish fruit for that matter. I take very good care of my fish and I feed them a nice variety of foods mixed together. I would like to know if any one has ever tried of of those brimeshrimp kits. I would like to try but Im not sure how hard it is to hatch the baby brime shrimp. I hope someone can help.
