Yellow Mask Tang also known as the Yellowfin Surgeonfish or Xanthopterus Tang are found from East Africa to the Hawaiian Islands and French Polynesia, north to southern Japan, south to the Great Barrier Reef and New Caledonia.

Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items

The Yellow Mask Tang is one of the largest tangs so it needs a large tank to grow to the beutiful fish it can become. It can be aggressive towards other tangs and food competitors, but will generally leave other fish a lone. A great algae eater for a very large sized tank.

Like other tangs, it will eat meaty foods, but it's important it can graze on algae/seaweed the entire day to ensure it will stay healthy. So feed flakes/pellets multiple times a day and make sure there is always seaweed available.
