Rare White Tang on display at World Wide Corals [video and updated photos]

By Leonard Ho - Posted Mar 31, 2011 02:30 AM
WWC has posted a video of a rare White Tang over at our friends, www.reef2reef.com. Amelanistic Zebrasoma flavescens are extremely rare, and totally white specimens are even rarer (most xanthic specimens still retain some random pigmentation). See the video after the jump.

Read the Reef2Reef thread.

World Wide Coral's 293 gallon reef tank also houses a Black Tang, Chevron Tang, Yellow Tang, Achilles Tang, and Convict Tang, in additional to various other wrasses and fishes.  If you're in the Orlando area, be sure to check out WWC's White Tang, impressive display tanks, and the incredible "Jason Fox" Chalice Corals.

Some updated photos of "Casper" by WWC! More photos and discussions at Reef2Reef.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
