The Achilles Tang is a species of surgeonfish native to various parts around Australia, Hawaii, Pitcairn, and sometimes the southern portions of Guatemala and Mexico[1]. They feed on plants most of the time (mainly algae), but in captivity, they will eat varieties of shrimp. At the end of the teardrop shape near their tail, there is an extremely sharp spine, posing a dangerous threat to people handling this fish.
