This fish is also known as the Sohal Surgeonfish and Red Sea Clown Surgeon, and less commonly the Zebra Surgeon, Majestic Tang, Majestic Surgeon, Zebra Tang, and Arabian Tang. It is found in the Red Sea, to the Arabian Gulf, and the Arabian Sea, sometimes in large aggregations, but usually in solitude. These fish commonly inhabit the reef plateau just before the slope, and are generally found in depths of less than 20 meters (65'). Wild Sohal Tang specimens can grow to 16 inches; in an aquarium the adults will normally grow from 7 to 10 inches.
The Sohal Tang is hardy, but susceptible to a disease known as Lateral Line erosion, or Hole in the Head. A vegetarian diet high in vitamins, especially beta-carotene can aid in the prevention of development of the disease. Stray voltages are also thought to contribute to this disease and the grounding probe may be beneficial

As-Salāmu Alaykum, Mehmet! I like this shot a lot. Very nice colors and fine detail on the Surgeonfish. Of course, it's natural combination of blue and red are eye magnets as well. My compliments!
p.s. by the way, was this shot taken at an aquarium?

AS 570 ile elde edilebilecek en üst neticelerden biri bence bu resim... Doygun saturasyon kırmızıları net bir şekilde öne çıkarmış ve dalga çizgilerinin yansımasına netlik ve renk katarak iyi bir efekt oluşturmuş... tebrikler...
