The Purple Tang is commonly referred as the Yellowtail Sailfin Tang, Yellowtail Surgeonfish, and the Blue Surgeonfish. It has a purple colored body with yellow tail and yellow accents on the pectoral fins. The Purple Tang requires lots of free-swimming space and plenty of potential hiding spots. The Purple Tang can be very aggressive and do not get well with other tangs of the genus Zebrasoma. It feeds on meaty foods, it is important to offer them plenty of marine-based seaweed and algae as well. 

Surprisingly dark in color. It looks more black than purple. Hopefully it'll lighten as it gets older. This fish is indeed bold. Refused to be intimidated by my other tangs. Now they all appear to get along.
