Yellow Tangs in our Pacific Coral Reef exhibit!

Several yellow tangs were recently introduced into our Pacific Coral Reef  exhibit!

Did you know? These fish are like little lawnmowers – they spend large portions of their day picking at rocks, quickly devouring any threads of algae.

Yellow tangs are a species of surgeonfish. Like the rest of their “family,” these tangs live in tropical habitats (ranging from the Hawaiian Islands to the coast of Florida).
