Brine shrimp are most nutritious right after they hatch, so keeping them is not a real benefit for the copperband.
Good luck with that fish. I tend to stay away from fish that I know have a tendency to be tough to keep in an aquarium. I had a few specimen of fish die on me early in my fishkeeping career. I feel now that if more die than stay alive in captivity, it is not worth me risking the life of the fish. Better to keep hardier fish than to waste my money and more importantly a fish's life just because I think I might be able to keep him...
