Some very experienced Tang keepers have failed with these fish.
Failed to get them well after arrival, despite knowing and being used to newly imported Tangs.

There is only one importer here (I think you guys have more choice but maybe very careful selection :wink: ) I would trust to get these for me but I could not afford the fish or the risk. :(

We have had problems on occassion, as they do not ship well, especially at the 6.0 inch plus size. Best to import/receive 4 inch fish. Also they can be picky about food, and if in a precarious cpndition upon arrival, additional days without eating are not good. Lastly they are prone to bacterial infection from shipping stress and related issues. In short, they can be a challenge, but well worth it. Best advice, find an experienced importer, ask him how long he has had the fish ( on this fish I would say 14-21 days min), and if they are eating
