Hippo Tang


The Hippo Tang, also known as the Blue Tang or Regal Tang, has a mesmerizing presence. Renowned for its striking electric blue body and sunny disposition, this iconic fish adds a touch of elegance and charm to any aquatic environment.


The Hippo Tang is primarily herbivorous, feasting on a diet rich in algae and seaweed. Providing a variety of vegetable-based foods, such as algae sheets, nori, and specially formulated herbivore pellets, ensures their nutritional needs are met. Supplementing their diet with occasional treats like brine shrimp or mysis shrimp adds variety and enrichment. Regular feeding sessions throughout the day help maintain their health and vibrant coloration.


A spacious aquarium with ample swimming space and live rock for grazing mimics their natural reef habitat, allowing them to thrive. Providing a peaceful environment with compatible tank mates reduces stress and promotes their health. Maintaining stable water parameters, including temperature, pH, and salinity, through regular water changes and efficient filtration is essential for their longevity. Hippo Tangs can be sensitive to fluctuations, so diligent monitoring is key to their success. With their graceful movements and vibrant colors, Hippo Tangs will surely become your marine aquarium’s centerpiece.
