FOR EXPLANATION OF HERBIVORE FISHES ONLY - WE DO NOT TRADE LIVESTOCK!
The Achilles Tang or Achilles Surgeonfish is a very active swimmer and needs at least a 6ft long tank. It is dark brown to purple coloured, with a white marking behind his gills, white and orange around the dorsal and an orange teardrop near the caudal fin.
To keep this fish healthy and colourful he needs beside of some meaty food a large part of his daily diet in marine seaweed and algae.
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.
