Thumbs up My new Lieutenant Tang!

Well I was at the lfs down here about three weeks ago and saw this Tang that a local doctor sold them. Well I had to ask Robert what it was, and he told me it was an Acanthurus Tennenti or Lieutenant Tang. So Yesterday I went back in, and he was still there. The lfs didn't know what kind of tang it was and told me it was an orange shoulder. I knew what it was, and asked them how much and they sold it to me for $60. He is about 7" long and in great condition. My PB, Mimic, and Yellow tangs all took their shots at him, but he is swimming fine today and they all seemed to accept him. I will post pic tonight hopfully as this is a very cool fish.

Here is my new baby. Sorry about the quality, but he is one fast swimmer, and this was a rush job. I will try to get better ones later.

Thanks, I thought the price was real reasonable. But then again the lfs didn't know what it was and bought it from a private party.
