Least Concern

Did you know?

Diet

Regal tangs eat the excess algae off coral by grazing on it with their sharp teeth. This prevents the coral from suffocating.

Fun fact

This type of fish became famous as the character Dory from Nemo. She's very forgetful in the film, but as far as we know they don't have any memory issues!

Habitat

They live in the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean in the coral reefs that grow along the shores.

These fish are quite social and are usually found in pairs or small groups. Often, they form schools with 10 to 12 members, sometimes mixing with different species of fish too. When faced with a predator they'll often "play dead" by lying on their side and remaining still until the predator passes them by.
