Convict Tang

The silver and black Convict Tang is a wonderful addition to both reef tanks as well as a fish-only tank. A much more passive "surgeonfish," the Convict Tang should not have other tangs as its tankmates as they will harass and pester it. While the Convict Tang does have the scalpel-like peduncle spine just like other species of Tangs, it is much smaller and less pronounced in the Convict Tang. As with other Tangs, provide large amounts of swimming room.
