Other information.
Australian Copperbands look similar to the regular Copperband Butterfly, but they have a stripe missing, and often much larger. In contrast, we have found this species feeds much more readily and is easy to keep. They are not common in the aquarium trade and the fact they have a long journey from Australia accounts for their high price.

For more information ask a member of staff in store.
