I don't think they are too aggressive. I just don't get why they cost so much.

Blacks and Gem Tangs are the most peacful of the Genus Zebrasomas. I've been looking for a Gem myself...they are very rare...back to the old Law of Supply and Demand!

Yes but they are still a Zebrasoma. The good news is, most Zebra's are usually not overly territorial with smaller fish. They usually will harrase fish that are similar size shape.

I met a guy who had a black tang in his reef tank. He says they're beautiful and hardy but if it ever died on him; he'd leave the hobby forever. That's pretty bad. Of course, he spent years collecting all sorts of rare fish; fish I never even heard of. Gem Tangs look gorgeous on the PC, but I've ever seen one anywhere else.

Gem Tangs are nice; Based on some of the pictures...their uniqueness is captivating.

I have one- it's very peaceful and hardy. I've had it in captivity since it was about the size of a quarter. When I got it it could only eat cyclopeeze and I kept it in a nursery by istself for almost a year. Now it's in the main 1700 gallon display and never picks on anyone. It's very fat now(knock on wood) and about 5 inches. I have been considering selling it but never followed through. I am not asking a price but would consider an offer. Realize this- This is the only captive raised Gem Tang with a track record over (1.5 years in captivity) currently for sale. The others are wild caught and could have worms or other parasites. Serious inquiries only and realize I'm not overly anxious to sell.
