    They only collected from Cuba , and so yeah would expensive, I would rather have a royal gramma personally, i think their colouration is better but everyone has their own taste in fish

    i like different. i have seen so many setups with the same combo that it has become boring..

    thankfully fish such as achillies tangs and golden angels although still scarece are starting to creep into our country. being a lover of gramma's this one caught my eye..
    if i was flush i would not flinch at the 6k, but reality is that cash is a factor.

    to each his own :razz: the fact that we are all different in our tastes and our ideas is the very reason this hobby is so interesting :)

    I was wondering why this fish is called dejongi. Maybe Ari de Jong is involved. He is running one of the biggest marine wholesaler in Europe, based in the Netherlands.
