The Blue Hippo Tang will be receiving a lot of attention because of the 'Finding Dory' movie being released this year. The Blue Hippo tang is one of the most beautiful and interesting fish in our oceans, but it is certainly not for the novice aquarist. If you are not an expert aquarist with a tank of at least 180 gallons, please consider another fish for your aquarium display. The marine aquarium hobby is a wonderful and rewarding hobby and we encourage you to start up a tank and explore all it has to offer. But we all also have a responsibility to the oceans and the animals that we purchase to ensure that we have the tools and experience to be successful. If you have questions about this animal or selecting a suitable alternative, please call or email us and we will be happy to give you a personal consultation.
The Blue Hippo Tang, a.k.a. Regal Tang, is a beautiful blue fish with black bands and a yellow tailfin. These fish have interesting behavior and do well in groups. The Blue Hippo likes lots of rockwork to help make it feel secure. They can be kept singly or in groups. The Blue Hippo can be very timid and may wedge themselves under rocks and into caves and crevices when young or new to an aquarium. In the wild they will wedge themselves into coralheads and branching corals. They are very peaceful towards other fish and do well in a peaceful community or reef tank. This fish will often lie on its side and "play dead".The Surgeonfish family consists of fish which are colorful, thin-bodied, and usually have an oval shape. These fish have long continuous dorsal and anal fins and crescent tailfins. The scalpel at the base of their tailfin is very sharp and is used by the fish for protection from predators as well as a way of establishing itself with other fish. These fish are usually seen at reefs eating algae all day long. Photo by Saltwaterfish.com member, GeckoPSU.
