General Information
Common Name Yellowtail Sailfin Tang, Yello
Family Acanthuridae
Latin Name Zebrasoma xanthurus

One of the most common and easiest to keep of the Tang family, the Yellow Tang is considered a benchmark in the marine ornamentals trade.

Often purchased to assist in algae control, Yellow Tangs will spend their day picking at rockwork and occasionally sand in search for hair algae to eat.

Diet: In the wild, Tangs spend their entire day swimming around on the reef in search of marine algae and meaty bits of food they can find. It is recommended to feed dried marine algae (Nori), Spirulina Flakes, and frozen mysis shrimp.

Tangs quite easily adjust to captive diets and will eventually eat flake and pellet foods as well. It is recommended to soak flake food in some type of vitamin supplement like Selcon or a garlic supplement in order to help the fish fight off any possible parasite infestation and offer balanced nutrition.
