Overview

The Clown Tang, also known as the Clown Surgeonfish, Lined Surgeonfish, or Blue-banded Surgeonfish, has horizontal blue striping on a bright yellow to orange background. It also has large peduncle spines.

A 250 gallon or larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room. It requires very clean, properly oxygenated water. It is aggressive towards other Tangs, Surgeonfish, and fish with similar body shapes or feeding patterns.

Although Tangs will eat meaty foods along with the other fish in the aquarium, 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.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/2" to 2"; Small/Medium: 2" to 3" Medium: 3"" to 4"; Medium/Large: 4" to 5"; Large: 5" to 6" X Large 6" to 8"

Please note: We guarantee that ALL aquaria species we offer will arrive alive and in good condition. However, because of the increased level of care required for this particular species, it has been designated as "Expert Only." This species is recommended only for the expert aquarist, zoo, or research institution please.

Customer Testimonials

Mike P Aurora , IN
The Clown Tang is a very active and colorful fish. It added color and seems to keep the other fish active in the aquarium. I would only recommend this fish to people that have other aggressive fish and put time into keeping their water quality top notch. This fish is a good eater once settled in the aquarium. Try to make this fish your last pick so it does not become too territorial.
