    Yeah I know; I'd probably save up for one when I become more experienced. Really pretty IMO

    Yeah I read about that. I think he should just keep them in a cycled tank by themselves and just make sure that conditions are perfect.

    neccesarily its not any harder to take care of then a reg marroon, but the responsibility of owning one would be immense.

    I know it's not harder to take care but it's VERY VERY EXPENSIVE; that;s why you want to be more experienced so it doesn't die on you in like 2 weeks.

    If you have money to buy a fish, than you should have a lot of money. Who would buy a $5000 fish. I would pay $600 for a black tang but not a $5000 fish that won't make me dinner. This fish is like any maroon, just a different morph like the picasso clowns.
