i am not aware of one that will. but they are just something you have to deal with in a saltwater tank.

Depending what you have in the tank some if not all species of triggers will eat them.

This is the first time I have ever heard anyone call feather dusters annoying. Everyone I know thinks they a re a sign of a succesful tank that has fully matured. Not only that, but as filter feeders they help remove wastes from the water preventing algae growth.

well copperbands and tangs souldnt go togther in the same tank for that reason. copperbands are hard to keep anyway, once thier food it gone, they dont really eat.

Yes I would like to get a butterfly but the fish store said it would pluck at my corals as well.

I agree with what Mike wrote. What exactly is the problem with them?
