Yellow Tang (Zebrasoma flavescens)

They reach a maximum size of around 8"  most rarely exceed 6", again this small size compared to most tangs makes them a very appealing fish.

Like most Tangs they with fight with fish that have a similar body shape (eg Sailfin Tangs, Purple Tangs and Scopas Tangs). Occasionally a fish with take offence to fish of the same colour. 

Yellow Tangs require a varied diet that contains algae and a mixture of meaty foods such as mysis, brine shrimp or krill.
