In-Game Description

"A beautiful vibrant blue fish with a yellow tail fin, often seen in coral reefs. Its thin body allows it to hide in crevices in the reef when threatened.

Although it primarily feeds on algae it also has a strong liking for lettuce, which it is given in some aquariums."

This fish becomes almost impossible to miss in the summer. Blue Tangs tend to gather around areas with coral. A few can be found hiding away in other seasons, primarily in the Ruins of Mo'ia Atoll.
