Zebrasoma flavescens - The Yellow Tang is arguably the most iconic and highly sought after aquarium fish in the world. Bright yellow in coloration and endemic to the islands of Hawaii, this is a fish we breed in conjunction with the Oceanic Institute of Hawaii Pacific University.
These voracious herbivores do well when frequently fed a mixed diet of nori, frozen food blends, Easy Reefs Masstick and appropriately sized DKI Pellets. Adults should ideally be housed in a tank of 125 gallons or more. Larger aquariums may support a school of these tangs when added at the same time. The small size Yellow Tangs are approximately 1.25" + and settle into aquariums much better than larger wild caught tangs. They can be aggressive towards similar species like the black and gem tangs. Feeding on C1 and C2 pellet and Hikari Spirulina Brine Shrimp.
