Overview

The Lemon Tang has a yellow oval body and can reach up to 10 inches in length.

A 70 gallon or larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room for the Lemon Tang. It is aggressive towards other Tangs, Surgeonfish, and fish with similar body shapes and color.

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 2-1/2"; Large: 2-1/2" to 3-1/2"
