  The Sailfin Tang is also known as the Eastern sailfin tang, Pacific sailfin tang, Sail fish tang, Ringed tang, Purple-lined tang, Pacific sailfin surgeonfish, and Pacific sail-fin surgeonfish. They are indigenous to the Pacific Ocean and Western Indian Ocean. The Sailfin Tang is mainly found in rock and coral reefs. During the juvenile stage, the fish are solitary creatures who prefer to stay hidden among rocks or corals. When they are adult, they mostly live singly or in pairs. The Sailfin Tang species is one of the largest members of the genus Zebrasoma. Though they can get along with other tank mates quite peacefully, they are territorial in nature towards similar looking fish. The Sailfin Tang helps keep corals healthy by preventing overgrowth of algae by feeding around them.

Beautiful unique fish. Fun to watch how it moves around with that big sail.

Beautiful fish! Much larger than expected. Very active and eating well. Getting along with large Yellow Tang, medium Purple Tang and small Atlantic Blue Tang.

Great buy! Healthy and happy! This is BY FAR, the prettiest sailfin I've ever seen! Beautiful markings and color! I was very worried when have arrived. He was upside down in the bag. I slowly acclimated and dripped a few drops in immediately and he slowly came around. He's down great now! Shipment was really rough in this little guy, but I guess it's hard on all of them.
