Project Description

Tangs generally feed on algae, though there are a few carnivorous species. Most tangs will not tolerate other fish the same color and/or shape as them. They have a spine on their tails that can cut open other fish and unprotected hands. All tangs should be given plenty of swimming room; try to have at least a 4′ tank. Contrary to popular belief they will tolerate smaller (4′ to 5′) tanks just fine but tend to live better in larger tanks, over 5′
