I think I may just be more realistic. lol The pruple tang might become a reality one day if I can part with the money. But that would be years down the line from now. I don't ever expect to get a black tang unless I hit the lottery and even then it would sting spending that much money on a fish. i was beside myself when i lost a couple hundred $$ worth of fish in my 125g holocaust a few months back.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I was just talking to my coworkers about how they just setup a tank and throw fish in there today. I can't watch that show it give me the worst case of tank envy.

I havent caught that show yet, but is that what they really do? Just add fish to a tank with no other precautions? cause if thats true, thats just great.....now all sorts of fish will be subject to the same advice from a stupid tv show.

I may have to tivo it once and see what its all about
