Product Details

The blue tang is also called the palette surgeonfish, due to the black mark on its side that is shaped like a painter’s palette. The name “surgeonfish� refers to the spines near the fish’s tail, which resemble a surgeon’s scalpel. This makes them dangerous to handle. Despite this, they are very popular aquarium fish, particularly after being popularized in animated movies. History: Many species of surgeonfish in the family Acanthuridae are called “blue tang�. The Atlantic blue tang is entirely blue (though it is born yellow), while the powder blue tang is blue with a black facial area and yellow dorsal fin. To avoid confusion, the blue tang of the Indo-Pacific is known by several other names, including regal tang, palette surgeonfish, royal blue tang, and flagtail surgeonfish.
