Powder Blue Tang
Powder Blue Tang (Semi-aggressive)
Powder Blue Tangs are popular due to their color and activity, but these fish require very good marine conditions and plenty of veggies to keep them healthy. Though they "only" grow to ten inches, they will beat up other tangs.
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.
