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.
Also known as the Blackspine Surgeonfish.
Tangs are often called surgeonfish because of the scalpel-like spine at the base of its tail. The usually solitary and territorial tang will swing its tail at a target as a means of defense. Both its color and shape change with age.
In nature, the Fowleri Tang is found near drop offs and reefs. In the aquarium, this species does a wonderful job of controlling algae. Even with algae growth in a tank, supplemental algae and seaweed is a must to prevent health issues.
A tank with rocks and décor to provide several hiding spots and plenty of swimming space is recommended. Tangs tend to be most aggressive towards fish of similar form and color. To minimize aggression in smaller aquariums it is recommended to have only one Tang.
