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).
Be sure to check back every Friday to find out what’s happening!

We are excited to announce our partnership with Discovery Communications in launching Animal Planet L!VE, a new digital video experience bringing live feeds of animals straight to your home computer, mobile device, or connected TV!
The Pacific Reef Cam gives unfiltered, round-the-clock access to the mesmerizing world of our Pacific Coral Reef exhibit in Baltimore!
Yellow tangs are just one species of fish you’ll see swimming in our Pacific Coral Reef exhibit!
Home to more than 60 species, this vibrant exhibit shows viewers the complex system of a true living coral reef. Brightly colored tangs and clownfish dart through the water as hermit crabs and snails move slowly along the sea floor.
The hope in offering this live feed is to both share the beauty of these fragile ecosystems and inspire others to help protect them!
