Powder Brown Tang

SKU: 314Categories: Saltwater Fish, Tang

The Powder Brown Tang, also referred to as the Powder Brown Surgeonfish, Japan Surgeonfish, and White-faced Surgeonfish, showcases a brown body with a white patch on the cheek between the mouth and eyes. Its pectoral, anal, and dorsal fins are dark brown with light blue highlights at the tips, and the dorsal fin features an orange stripe. The tail has a yellow vertical bar and is blue in color. Yellow striping extends along the body and forms a wishbone-shaped marking against the anal and dorsal fins. To provide sufficient swimming space, an aquarium of at least 125 gallons is required. It’s best to keep only one Powder Brown Tang per tank, and use caution when cohabiting with other Tangs or Surgeonfish. Tangs with similar body shapes can exhibit high levels of aggression towards each other. Although Tangs can consume meaty foods alongside other fish in the aquarium, it’s vital to offer them plenty of marine-based seaweed and algae. This helps to strengthen their immune system, reduce aggression, and improve overall health. To do this, you can tie dried seaweed to a rock or use a veggie clip, and feed them at least three times a week.
