Powder Blue Tang



Powder Blue Tang, also called The Powder Blue Surgeonfish, has an oval-shaped body and strikingly vibrant, bold markings. It is sought-after for its vivid colors and striking markings with a variety of shades of blue, complemented by white and yellow. A bright, yellow-colored highlights the pectoral and dorsal fins. Striking blue-black lines define the tail and face. A 125-gallon or bigger aquarium is required to give ample swimming space. It can be extremely aggressive with other Tangs and Surgeonfish specifically the ones with similar shapes and colors. It is recommended to be the sole one in the tank, unless in huge systems. Introduce in a single go in the event that more than one species is required to be kept within the same tank. While Tangs can eat meaty foods, it's crucial that they receive ample amounts of seaweed that is marine-based and algae. This will boost your immune system and lessen aggression and improve overall health. Give dried seaweed that is tied to a stone or the veggie clip, and feed them three times a week. Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad, and Ocean Nutrition are all ideal products that are simple to make use of. Approximate Size of Purchase: Small: 1-1/2" to 2-1/2"; Small/Medium: 2-1/2" to 3"; Medium: 3" to 4"; Medium/Large 4" to 5"; Large: 5" to 6"

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
