Blue Tang

Paracanthurus hepatus

Are you looking for Dory, but don't want to take fish from the wild? We are now offering 100% captive-bred Biota Blue Tang in small batches. 

Blue is an exceptionally rare colour in nature, and few animals sport the deep, velvety blue colour that the Blue Tang does. A contrasting black "art pallet" pattern and yellow tail give the fish even more visual interest. This fish is not only beautiful but is also known for having a lot of personality. 

Blue Tangs are mostly peaceful and reef safe. They may fight with conspecifics, but get along well with most other species. They grow relatively large with a typical size in captivity around 8", but males can grow to almost a foot long. Feed diets rich in marine algae and some meaty foods. Our captive-bred Blue Tang like tiny pellet foods, seaweed, and other prepared diets like frozen foods.
