Yellow tangs are originally from the waters of the Central Pacific Ocean. Yellow Tangs grow to around 4 inches at full length and should be kept in an aquarium of at least 20 gallons in size to provide them with plenty of swimming and living room. Yellow Tangs are herbivores and should be fed plenty of flake and frozen foods along with other vegetable preparations. Yellow Tangs can be aggressive and should only be kept with other fish of the same temperament. Yellow Tangs are relatively easy to care for, and can be kept by the beginning aquarium owner with little problem.
