Yellow Tang - Hawaii Small 1.5-2.5 in. (Zebrasoma flavescens)
The Yellow Tang, also known as the Yellow Surgeonfish, or the Yellow Sailfin Tang, is one of the most recognizable fish available for marine aquariums.

The Hawaiian Yellow Tang has a bold personality. It is an active fish that requires plenty of swimming room. A tank of at least four feet in length is recommended. Best kept one per tank. The Yellow Tang May be aggressive towards other tangs, especially others of the Zebrasoma genus.

Provide hiding places large enough to accommodate. As most tangs mainly feed on algae, this fish requires lots of live rock for grazing.

Diet should include plenty of algae based flake or pellets, nori, and fresh greens. Will also accept most small meat items such as mysis and pieces of krill.
