The Blue Hippo Tang Yellow Belly is commonly refereed to as the Flagtail surgeonfish, common surgeon, or doctorfish. With its beautiful and vivid colored body, the Blue Hippo Tang Yellow Belly makes a gorgeous addition to any tank. The Blue Hippo Tang Yellow Belly has yellow coloration on the caudal fin that continues across the belly region and gives a unique look to this fish. It is sure to be an impressive addition to reef or fish-only aquariums. The Blue Hippo Tang Yellow Belly requires plenty of live rocks because it appreciates good hiding locations. It also requires ample space to swim around, which is also essential for their optimum health. Although it is peaceful towards most tank mates, the Blue Hippo Tang Yellow Belly demonstrates aggressive behavior towards other fish of its own species. If you wish to keep a group in to the tank, make sure to introduce them all in once. The Blue Hippo Tang Yellow Belly should be offered plenty of marine-based algae or seaweed that helps in strengthening immune system, reduce aggression and improve their overall health. It is more susceptible to lateral line disease, fin erosion, ich and other skin parasites than many other fish. The Blue Hippo Tang Yellow Belly should be kept in a large aquarium of minimum 50 gallons, as it needs enough space to thrive. The Blue Hippo Tang Yellow Belly does not bother any sessile invertebrates present in the tank that makes it a reef compatible species. When frightened, the yellow belly blue hippo tang, particularly juveniles, hide behind live rocks or within branching corals. The Blue Hippo Tang Yellow Belly thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.10-8.4.

Breath Takeing
I added this little guy to my 90gallon tank not to long ago, he still is kinda small but his belly is very vibrant even at this young age he is. And only to get brighter as he gets older!!! Beautiful fish.
