Practical Fishkeeping (UK) - - Marine -

Sci­en­tific name: Acan­thu­rus coeruleus Ori­gin: Western At­lantic into tem­per­ate waters Max­i­mum size: Around 40cm max­i­mum, but most are much smaller Cost: £30-55

Small yel­low ju­ve­niles of this species are hard to re­sist, such is their beauty. How­ever, they de­mand ro­bust tank­mates due to their bel­liger­ent dis­po­si­tions, which are ex­ac­er­bated when they’re stocked into aquaria too small for them. To min­imise ter­ri­to­rial ag­gres­sion, add them into ex­ist­ing aquaria as the last fish,

In the right sys­tem, this is an at­trac­tive and hardy tang.
