SALE - Finding Dory the Regal Blue Tang
'Finding Dory' - this gorgeous sparkly Regal Blue Tang has sparkly eyes and sparkly flecks all over.
As a scientific organisation with a number of 'fishy nerds' in the office, it set off a discussion on what Dory's character is based on and its true for many fish, that several common names are associated with a species of fish. This is an excerpt from Wikipedia that I thought you might find interesting.
Paracanthurus hepatus is a species of Indo-Pacific surgeonfish. A popular fish in marine aquaria, it is the only member of the genus Paracanthurus. A number of common names are attributed to the species, including regal tang, palette surgeonfish, blue tang (leading to confusion with the Atlantic Iyana Acanthurus coeruleus), royal blue tang, hippo tang, flagtail surgeonfish, Pacific regal blue tang and blue surgeonfish.
2003 Disney/Pixar film, Finding Nemo, and its 2016
sequel, Finding Dory, the character Dory (voiced by Ellen
DeGeneres) is a regal blue tang.
