I've seen some for $1800 but thought the prices might be coming down. LA sells purple tangs for $200 or more. In my area small purples are $89.99 and 5" purple tangs are $125.

I've seen one at Vividaquariums. They have it in their 800 gallon display. What I've learned about reef keeping is rare is gorgeous LOL. So in that sense you are right.

You are right. It's not because the fish looks better than others, it's because they are harder to catch. Let's face it, a goldflake angel is no where near as nice looking as a flame or potters, but they demand a higher price.
You are always seeing the very best lighting on the very best looking fish when googled. IMO, I'd rather have a clown tang...and the change.

I wish it just stopped there. Many of them are photoshopped.
