The Clown Surgeonfish (Acanthurus lineatus) also known as the Clown Tang, Striped Surgeon, Lined Surgeonfish, Blue-banded Surgeonfish and Blue lined Surgeonfish.

The Clown Tang is a beautiful colored fish and it is a great addition to a community tank where you will only have a single tang. The bottom part of its body is plain and the rest of its body is covered in brightly colored yellow and blue stripes.

Most Clown Surgeonfish are very active swimmers and can become a quite territorial fish in the confines of an aquarium.  

Being a tang, they need lots of swimming room and thrive in highly oxygenated water with lots of flow. Care should be given when handling as its caudal spine is venomous and can give a painful sting.
