Powder Brown Tang
The Powder Brown Tang is a popular fish also known as the White-faced or Japanese Tang. It has a brown body with a blue-trimmed black dorsal and anal fins and an orange streak on the rear of the dorsal fin. The tail is white with a yellow vertical bar and the body is rimmed in yellow around the base of the dorsal, anal and caudal fins. The face between the eyes and mouth is white.
Tangs will eat meaty foods along with the other fish in the aquarium, it is important that they are offered plenty of marine based seaweed and algae. This will strengthen their immune system, reduce aggression and improve their overall health. Offer dried seaweed tied to a rock or use a veggie clip, and feed at least 3 times per week. Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad and Ocean Nutrition are all ideal products and are very easy to use.
