Powder blue tang (Acanthurus leucosternon) SM-M
- Reviews (0)
The Powder Blue Tang has an oval body shape with extremely colorful, bold markings.
It is prized for its vivid colors and bold markings, with several shades of blue accented by yellow and white.
Bright yellow highlights the dorsal and pectoral fins, and striking blue-black markings outline the face and tail.
A 125 gallon or larger aquarium is needed to provide plenty of swimming room. It is aggressive towards other Tangs or Surgeonfish, especially those similar in form and color, and therefore should be the only one in the tank except in very large systems
Although Tangs will eat meaty foods along with the other fish in the aquarium but 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.
Offer dried seaweed tied to a rock or use a veggie clip, and feed at least 3 times per week. Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad and Ocean Nutrition are all ideal products and are very easy to use.
