A couple of years after one other group managed to breed the yellow tang, Zebrasoma flavescens, Mr Wen-Ping Su had a go on the identical household and managed his personal break by way of with rearing some Purple tangs. The primary one already hit the US and European markets, a number of weeks again. After I visited over a month in the past, the primary captive bred purple tangs have been too small to catch and .
