Artist's Description

‘Smiling’ Yellow Tang, photographed in the aquarium of Ouwehands Dierenpark , Zoo Rhenen – the Netherlands


The Yellow Tang (Zebrasoma flavescens Wikipedia) is a saltwater fish species of the family Acanthuridae.

It is commonly found in shallow reefs, from 2–46 metres (6.6–151 ft) deep, in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, west of Hawaii and east of Japan. Hawaii is the most common place for aquarium harvesting, where up to 70% of the yellow tangs for the aquarium industry are sourced from. (source: Wikipedia)
