White Cheek Tang
The Gold-rimmed Surgeonfish, also called the Whitecheek Tang or Whitecheek Surgeonfish, has a body that is black to purplish-blue with a small white mark on its cheek between its mouth and eyes. Its pectoral, anal, and dorsal fins are dark blue with blue highlights at the tips. The tail is blue with a yellow vertical bar, while a yellow striping runs along its body against the anal and dorsal fins, forming a distinctive wishbone-shaped marking. For this fish, a 125-gallon or larger aquarium is suitable to provide enough swimming room. It is aggressive towards other Tangs but peaceful with other fish in the tank. Although the Whitecheek Tang can consume meaty foods along with other fish in the aquarium, it is important to offer it plenty of marine-based seaweed and algae. This will strengthen its immune system, reduce aggression, and improve its overall health. To feed, offer dried seaweed tied to a rock or use a veggie clip at least three times per week. Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad, and Ocean Nutrition are all excellent products that are easy to use.
