Aquarium Conditioned-Blue Hippo Tang

Sale price Price $119.99 Regular price $119.99

Aquarium Conditioned-Blue Hippo Tang, Paracanthurus hepatus.

Size: ~1-2 inches. They will reach up to ~10-12+ inches with maturity.

We are excited to offer Blue Hippo tangs. They are beautiful! This is a peaceful tang species and also a great algae grazer to help keep nuisance algae in check in the aquarium.  This is the Yellowbelly vareity and they are young juveniles. Young juveniles do not always show the yellow belly like mature adults do so some individuals may or may not display this or have this color variation at this age. We are feeding them a variety of prepared foods including frozen Mysis shrimp, Nori, frozen Calanus, LRS frozen nano blend, and a variety of other foods at our farm.

Our Aquarium Conditioned fish are quarantined and observed at our aquaculture facility before offered for sale. We prophylactically deworm all our fish as well as run an anti-parasitic treatment on all of our fish.  

They are a generally peaceful fish and possible to keep with our larger seahorse species (not Dwarf seahorses) at a younger age like these. When they grow they may be rehoused to a non seahorse aquarium or this is a great species for our customers not keeping seahorses. Of course, keep an eye on them for signs of aggresion with other tank mates. We recommend a large aquarium for them such as a 125 gallon or larger.
