Hi

You have I am afraid started off with a 10gall tank which is way too small, to have any real success with espically the Copperband Butterflyfish, which can grow to 8" & requires a minimum tank size of 55 gall
(see link for more details)

First thing you must do, is read as much information as you can, about starting a saltwater aquarium, out of this forum,books internet & so on
once you have done your homework you will be able to maintain & keep any type of fish you like with the right size tank & equipment, successfully

Good luck with your venture :)

Wow, thanks! LOL. =)
In a couple months, I'm getting a bigger thank.
So AT LEAST 55 gallon?
How long will it take for them to grow so big?!
I might have to get it soon!

Hi
Like I have said you really need to do you homework, the last link will answer all your imediate questions you have.

Also I would immediately return the Copperband back to who ever you got it from, & wait until you have got a bigger tank up & running
