It sure is. I was going to pull the Yellow to avoid problems and buy the Purple and he decided to just trade. Works for me.

Did he say why? Yellow tang=$8 wholesale, and purples are like $70....
I also find the yellows to be way more territorial than the purples....odd decision!

I was the person that told him about it on CL. He traded the seller (who he knew) for live rock and a little cash. Apparently his other fish have been picking on it, so he does not want it in there constantly being harassed.

This is the guy that gives me Zoas to hold in case his system ever crashes and I let him frag my Zoas to add to his collection, so we swap stuff from time to time. He services tanks too, so I'm guessing he has someone that wants the Yellow.

Todd's 240g Build

I added the Magnificent Foxface last night. So far, so good...already eating and hanging out with the Tangs. The Blue Jaw Trigger is hiding out more than usual, so maybe they got into it last night?

If all goes as planned today, the Yellow Tang is coming out and I'm getting the Purple Tang.

I'm still undecided about the Cherub Angel. I know its reef safe, so might put it into the 60g, but part of me also wants him in the 240g. I hate these decisions....

Well, after an hour long chase and having to remove about half the rock out of my 240g, I got the Yellow Tang. Hate to see it go, but can't pass on the opportunity to get a Purple. I just got home with the Purple and will get better pics later. Kinda pale now due to stress...

Todd, as always, my jealousy continues. I still dream of a tank where I can have one of those guys swimming around with my coral.

This is really turning into a dream fish tank for me. I'm not one to spend tons of money on a single fish. The Magnificent Foxface was just absolute dumb luck at $50 and this Purple for a Yellow is insane too. I just put it in and it is not shy. I figure this other guy had it for a while in a tank that never had any disease, so it should be okay (I know, famous last words). It Immediately went to the other fish and they are playing "who's the boss" now. This Purple is about 5-6" too, so a good size and chunky/healthy looking.

Todd's 240g Build





I added some more rock (the blinding white in the pics) about 25 lbs, as it was too much for my son's 60g that I'm setting up. We added sand today...looks like milk, even after rinsing several times. Got a Fiji Blue Spot Puffer in QT as his first fish. I will start a new thread on that soon...got a Midas Blenny for my other son's 28g yesterday too.
