Captive Bred Purple Tang by Bali Aquarich

Purple tang being captive bred is now a reality by BALI  AQUARICH. Zebrasoma xanthurum is one fish admired by many hobbyists and we have a tank bred now. For years organisations are researching for captive breeding of many species. Here we have another break through in Purple tang. It is one of the toughest jobs in the aquaculture industry to breed in isolation. This is indeed a remarkable outcome.

BALI  AQUARICH is located at Bali, Indonesia, which provides some of the high-quality fish and fry throughout the year. They have a track record of more than 20 years, in reproducing marine fish fry. With more than 30 species under their belt from blue tang to batfish. It has a facility which is 300 m from the sea, reservoir, own filtration system, ponds, pools and indoor and outdoor culture facility. Well known for breeding angel and clowns in-house.

BALI  AQUARICH is third in line after Oceanic Institute at Hawaii Pacific University for Yellow Tang and University of Florida’s Tropical Aquaculture Laboratory for Pacific Blue Tang. Soon we can expect more on the tank bred in the hobby which will be a big turn around for the marine aquarium industry.
