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!
