The Hippo tang is a vibrant blue with black bold markings and are pretty shy at first. They can reach over a foot in size and will require an aquarium of at least 200 gallons with plenty of swim room as well as plenty of rock to hide and forage from. When they are small they are very social but as they grow they can become aggressive against other tangs. Their diet consists of marine algae, seaweed, and veggies. They may take high quality flake and pellet food.
This fish is guaranteed for live arrival.
