Sohal Tang is a hardy and generally reef safe fish that can be challenging due to its potential size and aggressive nature. The Sohal’s alluring beauty of contrasting and sometimes vermiculated stripes alternate from light to dark with most of its fins being jet black with electric blue outlining them. There is also a patch of orange post gill plate and on the peduncle where the Sohal’s sharp, boney “scalpel” lies.
