A fish that everyone instantly recognizes from the Pixar film "Finding Nemo" and "Finding Dory," the blue-tang. This fast swimmer is bright blue in color and enjoys competing with other fish to mark its territory. Its yellow tail fin contains two sharp blades with which it first warns its opponents before attacking. Our aquarium is generally quiet, the fish are well matched and each has their own place!
