The Clown Tang, also referred to in the form of the Clown Surgeonfish, Lined Surgeonfish also known as Blue-banded Surgeonfish, has horizontal blue stripes that contrast with a bright yellow-to-orange background. The peduncles are also large.

A 250-gallon or bigger aquarium is required to give plenty of space for swimming. It requires well-oxygenated, clean water. It can be aggressive with the other Tangs, Surgeonfish, and fish with similar body shapes or feeding patterns.

While Tangs are known to eat meaty food alongside divers in their aquarium, it’s crucial that they receive ample amounts of seaweed that is marine-based and algae. This will boost the immune system of Tangs, lessen aggression, and boost their overall health. Give dried seaweed that is tied to a rock , or the veggie clip, and feed them at least three times a week. Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad, and Ocean Nutrition are all ideal products that are user-friendly.
