The Blue Tang, also known as Regal Tang, is a fish commonly found around coral reefs in both games.

In-Game Description

Endless Ocean

"Colorful blue tang have narrow, elliptical bodies. One of the most striking fish in all of Manoa Lai, they are easily identified by their bright blue coloring, dark stripes, and yellow tails. They can be found throughout Manoa Lai during the summer.

This fish has small teeth in comparison to other fish of this type. Young blue tang like to hide together in branched coral gaps, but as they grow, they start swimming in the area surrounding the coral.

This fish is a friendly and curious sort that has been known to munch on lettuce held by divers."

Endless Ocean: Blue World

"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."


Endless Ocean

Blue Tangs become almost impossible to miss in the summer, but tend to gather primarily around areas with coral. A few can be found hiding away in other areas during other seasons, primarily swimming about in the halls of the Ruins of Mo'ia Atoll.

Endless Ocean 2

They can be found in loose shoals all throughout Gatama Atoll (and the attached Deep Hole, mostly in the Kelp Tunnel), Ciceros Strait and the Zahhab Region.


Blue Tangs tend to swim about in medium-sized, loose groups. The player should be able to get their encyclopedia information easily if they utilize food and petting.
