Blue Hippo Tang: Also known as the Blue Hippo Tang, the Royal Blue Tang, the Regal Tang and the Palette Surgeonfish, the Blue Tang is a very popular fish in the aquarium industry, rising to fame after the release of the films ‘Finding Nemo’ and its sequel ‘Finding Dory’.
Dory’s real-life counterpart is a Paracanthurus hepatus, or Pacific blue tang fish, which is sometimes referred to as a royal blue tang or hippo tang. The name is slightly misleading, since the blue tang isn’t always blue.
