Selling Blue Tang

Hi all,

I would like to sell my Blue Tang an wanted to know how much I could sell him for. He is about 3 1/2 inches right now if that helps. He has had a case of ich (per my knowledge I know that they get that a lot) and velvet. He is cured of both. He is in a 36 gallon tank, Petco employee told me it would fit so I got him but then I did my research afterwards and noticed that they new at least 150 gallons to be happy. When I sell him where could I sell him (LFS, Craigslist, etc) I do not want to ship him anywhere.

Thanks for the Help!

Put him on Craigslist. Will only sell to individual that has 150 gallons or more.

$50 is a good price for a medium blue tang.

Selling Blue Tang

They grow very fast, so not much if a premium on bigger ones.

In a 35 gallon that would be a lot of stress placed on him. They need swimming room or they can get sick. I would move him to larger quarters ASAP.
