Archielles Tang

I have read by some that these are almost impossible to keep and others that say they are tough to moderate to keep. Any expierences or ideas.

Want a great read check out my debut novel Neptune's Garden: www.neptunesgardenbook.com

As per most hard to keep species; the archilles IMO is one of the hardest tangs to keep. Her in Aus they come at around $250 minimum, but the LFS's continue to stock 5-6 a week and you see every buy them, the one or two that remain get sick, fin rot; ich etc..and they just go downhill.. I'd stick away; although a very beautiful fish.

I've had my achillies for many years now and the only problem I had with it was ich back when I first got it.
After copper treatment, I've never had a problem since.

It's a 50/50 shot. They have a poor survival rate in captivity. I see them at lfs all the time, and sometimes I just want to say stop ordering them!
