thanks for all the info, i got into saltwater just to have the betta, then started adding corals mainly because wanted some color in the tank with the live rock. would adding a coral banded shrimp just be a waste of money? i am having a bit of an outbreak with aptasia, what else would be a good clean up addition besides snails, crabs or starfish i have a few of those.

2 good betta-proof aptaisia eaters would be either a copperband or kleins butterfly, just be warned that when either fish runs out of aptaisia to eat they can be difficult to wean onto frozen foods : )[/list]
