Nice, 2 purple tangs for the price of one. Oh so far away for my motorcycle. Though with hind sight, I haven yet to get a small 2 inch yellow tang to live past 6 weeks. Just couldn't grow enough seaweed for them to eat. Darn.

Who knows, they could start breeding the purple and gem tang next! And in a few years, hybridized tangs, just imagine, a yellow/gem tang hybrid for only $150-200.
We have a couple aquacultured Purple tangs working in our coral aquaculture tanks at the moment. Biota had a limited release of them. Hopefully there will be more in the future.

It’s not really just manhattan reefs it’s a free market driven by supply and demand. If someone has a yellow tang and wants to sell it for more than they paid and someone is willing to buy it then it’s all good. These are ornamental fish, so not necessary goods like hand sanitizer or toilet paper during a pandemic (which are also protected by market gouging laws). It’s all good with me either way.
