With the presence of a very large and pronounced dorsal
fin, this fish is aptly named the Sailfin Tang. When threatened, they can
raise their dorsal fin ton appear larger than they reallly are, protecting
themselves from predators. 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. The Sailfin Tang needs a bigger
aquarium and should not be housed in tank smaller than 75 gallons. They are a
hardy and tolerant species who thrive well in a temperature range of 72-78
degrees and pH range of 8.1 to 8.4. The Sailfin Tang fish feeds on leafy
microalgae, so any tank with a sufficient amount of algae makes a very good
habitat for this species. The male Sailfin Tang tends to grow larger that the
female Sailfin Tang. 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.
