    This could actually turn into an interesting post. Please keep these communications public. This is a learning post for me as I have never bought a fish over 500 bucks before!

    I sure hope hoho is not confused. Feels like he might be getting over his skis.

    Mr Flounder, lets go dark on this one. Reefking is out of his comfort zone on this one. Lets leverage the stealth PM functionality.

    My first year in the hobby I remember going to the LiveAquaria Open House and asking what the price was of the tang in one of their bays. She said it was a gem tang and was "nineteen ninety nine" so I thought "ok, $20 bucks isn't bad for a fish, please hold it for me and we can bag it when I'm ready to checkout". She then told me she meant nineteen hundred ninety nine... Needless to say I did not get the fish. One of my favorites for sure, though.

    Was just at New Wave spending the last of my children’s college funds and they have a beautiful Gem Tang. Nice and fat and healthy, price was $1500.

    I saw that this weekend, that was my inspiration. I would like a smaller version.
