What is the average lifespan of an emperor blue tang fish?
it is said in some websites that it is 5 and in others that it is 20 or more but they are also talking about the blue tang with a tank life not out on th reef. So it is really unknown. ** I've had my Blue Tang(Hippo Tang) for 11 years in a 55 gallon aquarium. I bought it as a juvenile (about the size of a silver dollar). Now it's about 7 inches long and doing great.
The blue tang belongs to what genus?
There are two species, in two different genera, called "blue tang." The Atlantic blue tang is in the genus Acanthurus (species, Acanthurus coeruleus). The blue tang native to the Pacific and Indian Oceans is in the genus Paracanthurus (species Paracanthurus hepatus). This is the one that is more popular as a marine aquarium fish. It is also called the regal tang, blue surgeonfish, hippo tang, palette surgeonfish, or flagtail surgeonfish. Both of these blue tangs are in the family Acanthuridae, the surgeonfishes.
