Dussumieri Tang
(Acanthurus dussumieri)

This fish truly has quite the story. Originally from Hawaii, this fish was sent to Quality Marine and purchased by Infinity Aquariums. It then went to its new home in the Famous tank of Jeff Tremaine. It was the same tank featured on the Animal Planet show "Tanked". Over the years it became a stud of a fish and has developed the mature coloration of a Dussimer that is so appealing. Its tank mates over the years were mainly large aggressive fish; so, he is fully capable of holding his own in aggressive tanks. We picked up this fish a little over a month ago and fully quarantined with our standard protocol. Currently, this fish is being housed in our 900 gallon Hawaiian display tank in the Marine Collectors facility and is awaiting its forever home. Once Purchased, we will re-quarantine fish fish to ensure additional assurance of receiving a clean heathy fish.- Quarantine will start on the day of purchase and will be projected to ship 2 weeks later.
