copperbands are reletively safe if kept well fed. there are some corals they may nip at but if well fed they should be good. no clams. and i also dont reccomend them. they dont fair too well in captivity
huh ... im confused about the clam coment???
copperbands will almost for sure eat your clam up
Copperbands rarely survive more than a couple months. The longest I've heard of one living was Yote's, his lasted about six months. That's about it for butterflies. The rest of them will eat corals.
I haven't hear of any butterflies that were 100% reef safe.There are some that are ''with caution'' meaning small ornamental shrimps and corals can still be in danger.Copperbands(so difficult) and Golden(easy-moderate but expensive) are two of the reef safer kinds.
