Yellow Tang (Zebrasoma flavescens)

I have 6 beautiful Yellow Tangs and I purchased these to shoal together in my large marine aquarium. These wondeful bright yellow tangs are a great fish to keep. They eat anything and are easy to look after, very hardy.

Yellow Tangs as they are known to us also go under name of Yellow Surgeonfish or Yellow Hawaiian Tang.

They can fight intially but this will soon carm down as the pecking order is set.
