I put a picture of it on my wall...but lay $2500 for one fish? I do believe I would sign the papers to send me off to the mental institution in that short bus if I bought a fish that expensive.

the ONLY way i would spend that kind of money on a fish is if i had an ecosystem up and running for 10+ years, had the necessary equipment to ensure its long life. oh and prob a 100k/yr job. yeah that part helps lol

Better than being straight up executed by your significant other that gets mad at you for even buying an $80 SPS frag…LOL

But even with the $80 frag you have the capability of turning it into a $800 coral. The fish will be a fish.

I mean technically, if a small variant costs $2500, what would an adult variant be worth? 5k? 7k?

The coloration of some of the Zebrasoma tangs are beautiful. If I had to pick one it would be Desjardini Sailfin. However, the body shapes of many of the Acanthurus tangs make their genus my favorite.
