The Clown Tang has horizontal blue striping on a bright yellow to orange background and also has large peduncle spines.
A 250 gallon or larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room with very clean, properly oxygenated water.
It can be aggressive towards other Tangs, Surgeonfish, and even some fish with similar body shapes or feeding patterns.
Although Tangs will eat meaty foods, it is important that they are offered plenty of marine based seaweed and algae.
This will strengthen their immune system, reduce aggression and improve their overall health.
Offering dried seaweed tied to a rock or use a veggie clip, and feed at least 3 times per week can provide them with a good amount of nutrients.
Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad and Ocean Nutrition are all ideal products and are very easy to use.
