Yellow Tangs, Zebrasoma flavescens, are found dispersed throughout the waters of the Hawaiian and Indo Pacific regions. Members of the genus Zebrasoma are also called Sailfin Tangs, making reference to their extended dorsal and anal fins, which resemble the sails of a ship. These Tangs are agile swimmers and entertain the aquarium viewers with their amusing antics. Small schools can be maintained if the aquarium is large with lots of rocks/corals. Tangs are herbivores and their diets should therefore contain a variety of marine vegetable matter, such as seaweed.
Approximate arrival size for Yellow Tang: Small: 1-2"; Medium: 2.5-3.5"; Large: 4-5"
