Aberrant Scopas Tangs represents a distinct variation of the Scopas Tang species (Zebrasoma scopas), distinguished by their unique characteristics. Also referred to as koi tangs and tricolour tangs, they offer a striking deviation from the typical appearance of Zebrasoma scopas surgeonfish. These fish are recognized for their elongated bodies, typically growing to lengths of 8 to 10 inches (20 to 25 centimetres) in adulthood, with pointed snouts and sharp spines along their dorsal and anal fins.

What distinguishes Aberrant Scopas Tangs is their unconventional coloration and patterning, which can vary significantly from the species' standard appearance. While conventional Scopas Tangs usually exhibit a uniform brownish-gray hue with a solitary black spot near the base of their tail fins, aberrant variants may showcase unusual colours, patterns, or markings. These anomalies might include patches of white, yellow, or even blue intermixed with the typical brownish-gray coloration.

Aberrant Scopas Tangs are highly sought-after additions to marine aquariums due to their captivating and unique appearance. They generally exhibit peaceful behaviour but may display territorial tendencies, particularly towards similar species or newly introduced individuals. Proper care entails maintaining a well-equipped aquarium with ample space for swimming and shelter and a diverse diet comprising algae supplemented with commercial marine foods, ensuring optimal health and welfare in captivity.
