Eibli Mimic Tang
The Mimic Eibli Tang is so named because it mimics the appearance of the Centropyge eibli angelfish, whose scientific name it shares. This striking fish has an oval-shaped body adorned with vibrant orange vertical lines, while its stomach area is yellow to orange and gradually darkens towards its black tail. In addition to being a wonderful addition to marine fish or reef aquariums, the Mimic Eibli Tang is also useful in controlling algae growth. To keep a Mimic Eibli Tang, a larger aquarium is required to provide ample swimming room. It can be aggressive towards other Tangs or Surgeonfish of the same shape. If multiple tangs are to be kept in the same tank, it’s recommended to introduce all the different species at the same time. While Mimic Eibli Tangs can eat meaty foods, it’s essential to provide them with plenty of marine-based seaweed and algae to maintain their health and reduce their aggression. Dried seaweed can be offered by tying it to a rock or using a veggie clip, and feeding should occur at least three times per week. There are many excellent products available, such as Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad, and Ocean Nutrition, which are easy to use and highly beneficial for the fish.
They are reef safe.
