They are eating hair algae, cladophora, and repashy shrimp souffle (in that order)

I have never experience an issue from the small amounts of copper found in prepared foods. I fed them for years before there were other options and never had any issues wiht longevity or breeding. That being said, there are better diets now available. The reality is that amanos will eat just about anything, so don't need specialized foods.
