Warning: Last items in stock!
For best care, it should be housed in an aquarium of at least 180 gallons with ample room to swim. The Achilles Tang is a very territorial marine fish and can be very aggressive towards other Tang Fishes. Therefore it is better to keep just a single Tang Fish in the aquarium unless multiple Tang Fishes are introduced at the same time.
We recommend especially the macro algae listed HERE for this fish to keep him happy and healthy in the aquarium.
in addition, some dried Nori Algae is a very welcome addition for him.
