    Tip : Before you take a picture, crank up the whites. You have adjustable LEDs right!
    Can't see much of anything but blue.

    First citizen of the rebuild.


    Had him for almost 5 months in quarnatine. Didn’t want to put him in the old tank cause i didn’t know what issues i was having in the tank. Now is a great time to get him into his forever home.

    Gem tangs are getting pretty common now. I see them all over the place online for sale. The price seems to have come down a lot over the years. Some people have also reported buying them at Petco. Andy, how big is your qt tank? 5 months sounds like a long time in a tiny qt.

    Yup, "only" $700 at Live Aquaria (as point of reference). I mean heck, a black tang cost more.

    My theory is that gem tang selling at $700 is not really gem tang.
    This one seems like a real gem tang because they look like dots then lines.
    The gem with lines was considered rare in 2017 but no so anymore.

    I have gem tangs collected 6 yrs ago to recently and the one coming in now definitely has more lines. Getting gems with dots now can be tricky and same with black tangs because they been crossbreeding like rabbits
