The Blue Hippo Tang also known as Regal Tang is one of the most beautiful and iconic species of coral reef fish. These fish have interesting behavior and do well in groups. They can be kept singly and very timid. They may wedge themselves under rocks and into caves and crevices when young or new. In the wild they will wedge themselves into coral heads and branching corals. They are very peaceful towards other fish and they lie on its side and “play dead”.
