This was designed for the Hawaii Reef Exhibit 2012, focusing on fish. Yellow Hawaiian Tang, also known as the Yellow Sailfin Tang or Yellow Surgeonfish (Zebrasoma flavescens), is a saltwater fish species of the family Acanthurida. Adult fish can grow to 20 centimeters (7.9 in) in length, and 1-2 centimeters (0.39-0.79 in) in thickness. This species is bright daffodil yellow in color. They have a long snout-like mouth used (as with other tangs) to eat algae and seaweeds that suffocate corals. Both the dorsal and anal fins are large, extending for most of the length of the body. In the wild, yellow tang provide cleaner services to marine turtles, by removing algal growth from their shells.

Long, long ago, far, far away, when the subway cost a quarter and the corner drugstore was also an ice cream parlor where a little girl sipped vanilla egg creams, her mother, who made her wonderful clothes, showed her how to crochet. Her father taught her how to solder and make a tuner.
