Has anyone had any experience with these? I want a blue fish that isn't common place, and I think these are 10 times sexier than a purple (yawn). Only place I can find them is online so I would like to hear from someone that has had one before I take the plunge!

They're also a lot cheaper then the purple tangs. I had 1 awhile back. When I got him, he was all yellow with powder blue outlines around the fines . It took him maybe 3or4 months before he started turning blue. He was the only tang I had at the time in a community tank with other smaller fish(40gal.). He ate zucchini, spirulina pellets and red sea weed.

Where is Garland located? I may be able to get you 1 for around $35-$45 here in Houston.

Thanks! I'm more or less in Dallas, I'm still working on a couple of my connections here to see if I can get one. I found one online that would be about 45.

$45 for the fish is a great price.
But shipping gonna kill you.
Do you know what the shipping is, and what site is it?

Never bought fish on eBay. I hope you find something local so you don't have to deal with shipping.

I can get them at any size theres also a phase where they turn black and the outer rim is blue.. the blue phase is the middle phase.. the juv phase is yellow.. but depending on the size they range from $25 for the juv on up to $70 for the 6" one (black and blue)... the blue ones are a like $40 each..
