    my new copperband..

    .. image a bit blurry.. was a quick shot



    so far.. my yellow tang and him dont seem to be best buddies.. but i hope they get along soon.. right now they seem to be at the stage of bragging on the size of there dorsal fins.. too funny to watch.

    UH!! OH!!!!!....

    Liv,
    Your Copperband is raising it's dorsal fin because that's it's defense mechanism. These guys will stand dead in their tracks of any oncoming fish while lowering their head and sticking up their spines. It's actually too funny to watch. When I first got my Copperband, my Purple Tang tried to boss it around but it stood it's ground 100%. I have never seen another fish stop so dead in it's tracks when it would see those spines!!!!!!!!
    Nice looking guy by the way..., looks identical to mine!!
    Oh!!! Your Yellowtang looks like it's about to ambush the Copperband!!:

    he he yup the yellow just loves to try to ambush the copperband.. too funny.. but it never works.. that guy is awesome!! i think the yellow learned allready..no fin flashing this morning.

    Ivan has one more like that, both looked soo cute.. i think the other one is even bigger then the one i picked up.
    awesome shape & price.. thx Ivan !

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:

    I was wondering if the sting is lethal to fish / does it contain toxins/poison ?

    reason i'm asking is that my yellow tang does'nt seem to be the brightest bulb in the box.. he could piss him off good.. and end up being stung..
