Sailfin Tang

Zebrasoma veliferum

Sailfin tangs are very beautiful fish, with a checked/striped pattern and blue tail barbs. They are strongly paired, and when you see one, its mate is sure to be close. When they feel threatened, they extend their fins to put up a gorgeous “sail”. They are a shy fish which flees from divers and photographers.
