    What is the retail price on an achilles tang? Heard it was in the region of 2,5k each.

    Be very cautious with the Achilles...you don't want a fish @ that price dyin on you after a few weeks. Should go in a low stress tank.

    If you keep them stress free and in an environment that has lots of flow they will prosper.

    Unfortunately Achillies don't do well with tangs from the Acanthurus or Zebrosoma genus. To keep an Achillies with other tangs or even other fish that have similar body shapes, introduce together. Try get one that is very young too, the smaller they are the better they adapt to aquarium conditions.

    Regals always sleep in the same place every night. Try catch him then. You could also try switching your lights off, then use a torch to "blind" the fish and disorientate it then scoop with a net, this method has worked well with me, I even caught six chromis using this method.

    The problem is that were he sleeps I cannot get to without breaking several coral pieces from the rock structure.

    I will try the torch suggestion. Thanks for the tip.
