Hey, weren't these like $3,000 a few months ago?



Only $1,600!

I know people like to poke fun at this fish (black tang with ich, etc.), but I really like them. Take off that last zero, I'd get one for sure!

Definitely a nice fish but you can get 2 for the price LA is charging.

I think a bunch of reefers jumped on the $800 ones and they are gone. DD had one earlier this week but it got sucked up when they offered a 25% coupon which brought it down to $1200. Personally I like my Black Tang over this one, but if it was free I wouldn't turn it down.

That is crazy!! I called my LFS just to check with his wholesalers, and he comes back with $2,000.

I think that they found another source, so they aren't as rare as they used to be.

Rvs now collects them out of Madagascar which makes them easier to get than Mauritius. So ultimately price has come down. I have one at $750 and a black at $700. But I don't ship currently
