Your live fish may not match the image shown due to natural variations in each species. Each companion animal is different in shape, color, and personality.
The Lavender Tang, or Spotted Cheek Tang varies from light grey-ish brown to dark brown with a slight trace of lavender with orange & black spots. This often over-looked fish is actually quite the fascinating species. Grazing upon filamentous algae, these Hawaiian natives work great in schools often feeding together. Less territorial, and less aggressive than most other fish in the Acanthuridae family, the Lavender Tang is a wonderful addition to any large community tank. These fish are also great for controlling hair algae.
