The Yellow Tang fish will brighten up any reef or fish-only tank. This saltwater fish is a member of family Acanthuridae and has a beautiful oval shaped body possessing a single pastel-like yellow color along with long continuous dorsal, anal fins and crescent tailfins. It has sharp white razor spur near the tail, which it uses during fights and also to establish itself over other fishes. Known as an active swimmer, it will glide through the aquarium eating algae simultaneously and at night it beds down on the reefs or live rocks. Fairly resistant to diseases, the Yellow Tang is relatively easy to care for. It can be housed in groups of 3 or more as a shoal, or singly.This fish should be kept in an aquarium with at least 75 gallons of water and good room for swimming. It is highly recommended to have only one Tang to minimize aggression in the aquarium. Adult males tend to be larger than females and with its long snout-like mouth it can easily feed on algae and seaweeds that suffocate corals. The Yellow Tang has a sharp spine located near its tail, which it uses for protection. The Yellow Tang will surely draw attention to your home tank. As a matter of fact, this fish is among the most popular of all marine fish. The Yellow Tang is very active and loves to swim all over with curiosity. It is peace loving and non-aggressive when kept with dissimilar species.
Nice fish with good color. Lately the tangs in our local market have been small and appear rough looking. Your product, as usual, looks great.

The Yellow tang was a great addition to my tank. It is about 2 inches long which was perfect for me. It was a bit territorial when first introduced to my tank, but after about a week, all of the fish get along just fine. This tank LOVES to eat algae which is perfect for me. It is doing a great job of cleaning up some of the algae I introduced to the tank that starting growing too much.

My yellow tang arrived one month ago in healthy, good condition. He was somewhat timid at first and spent a good bit of time secluded in live rocks. That has changed, and he is now a very colorful, visible and welcome addition to my tank. He has been a bit aggressive a couple of times toward a blue hippo tang, but nothing serious. He is quite good with all of his other tank mates.

I got my yellow tang on special for 14.99 so I was super excited for him to arrive. I could not have expected anything close to the fish I recieved. He's only about 2 inches but man is he a champ. He arrived and at first looked a little pale, probably from spending 24 hours in a box. Was please not expecting him to be the best of the stock, but boy was I wrong. The moment I started his acclimation he brighten right up. I had his bag floating, with the sides turned down, slowly adding water every 15 minutes. Well 30 minute later I look over and my tang literally jumped out the bag and into the tank. with in an hour he has became vibrant yellow and has been non stop all over the tank, checking out every cranny. This fish far exceeded my expectations and has been awesome to watch. I will be buying all my further marine life from saltwaterfish.Com!

This fish arrived in good shape and is quite active. It took a few days, but it is eating pellet food, picking at algae on rocks and powerheads and also eating nori. Excellent fish.

I received two of these tangs for my 210. They were on each other the day after i added them. a few weeks have gone by and they have settled down immensely. They still put up a show for each other, but by and large the get along. At some point I will have to find a home for one. The began eating within a few days after adding them to my tank. Beautiful color, full not pinched and very healthy. A great addition!

Very healthy little fish! I always drip acclimate all creatures, I think 2 to 3 hours is good to prevent issues. I don't dip so I take extra time acclimating. His name is Nacho and he eats and eats on any algae, likes the seaweed. He thinks hes a clown fish now.
2 thumbs up in the yellow tang.
