"Easily identified by its vibrant yellow coloring, this fish has a white spine at the base of its tail fin. Another recognizable trait is the size of its dorsal fin, which is almost as large as its body, especially in younger fish.
The majority of fish have slightly protruding eyes on either side of their body. This gives them a field of vision that exceeds 300 degrees, enabling them to see both predators and prey easily.
In comparison, a human being's form of vision is about 200 degrees."
These can be seen all around Gatama Atoll.
These fish float scattered in loose groups over coral and sand. They respond positively to being fed and stroked.
- These can be found day and night in both games.
- The character "Bubbles" from the Pixar film Finding Nemo is a Yellow Tang.
