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. This fish should be kept in an aquarium with at least 75 gallons of water and plenty of 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.
The fish was shipped extremely well, and it was a perfect addition to my reef tank. I acclimated according to the instructions, and I have had no problems with any of the fish I have received. What more can you ask for? Cheaper then my local fish store and it was delivered to my front door the next day.

A Regal Presence on the Reef. Acts like it knows it too. Quite compatible with Powder-Blue but does get bossy on occasion. Keep 2 separate Live Rock Areas connected by a bridge so Each can Rule their Own Kingdom on the Reef.

My Yellow Tang is gorgeous and doing so well. My shipment was delayed an extra day when FEDEX's plane broke down but she was just fine when she arrived -- that's shows you how healthy she was to begin with.
