I was going to add on to that. Those tangs are not exactly hardy, and are very sensitive.

99% of my livestock purchases are bought online. Of course I expect them to arrive safe and healthy. It is the same method used by the LFS to get their livestock.

I'm a big fan of on-line purchases as well. Most of my livestock comes from LiveAquaria. The specimens are always top of the line, very healthy and exceed your expectations. They back up their shipping with a 14d guarentee that I don't get at my LFS and their customer service is OUTSTANDING.

The last shipment I got in from LA had a Copperband Buttefly in it. Something happened during shipping and his bag broke. He arrived with very little water with him. I called LA and they made a note in my file and then asked me to go ahead and acclimate him anyway. He was dark and barely moving. Poor fish. I really thought he was a gonner, but much to my surprise he perked right up during acclimation and has been a great addition to the tank ever since.

I much prefer on-line, guarenteed fish over LFS walk out the door and he's your problem fish.

Online is the only way to go in my book, unless you have a fish store that will match the price and garuntee....

I have bought many, many things online, and am very satisfied, including a tang..
