Sailfin Tang

Greek Name: (Zebrasoma velifer)

$69.99

Sailfin Tang, also known as Pacific Sailfin Tang, has an oval-shaped body that has distinct, vibrant designs. It’s brown-colored with some light freckles on its nose. The body is adorned with five vertical yellow stripes that have intricate patterns in each stripe. The tail starts with bright yellow and ends with blue highlights. The appearance of the fish can almost increase in size by lifting or lowering its dorsal and anal fins.

A 180-gallon or larger aquarium is required to give ample swimming space. It can be aggressive toward its own species as well as its conspecifics occasionally but is peaceful with others in the tank. Introduce the species immediately.

While Tangs are known to eat meaty food alongside others in aquariums, it’s crucial that they receive lots of marine-based seaweed and algae. This can strengthen the immune system of Tangs, decrease aggression, and improve overall health. Give dried seaweed that is tied to a stone or an organic clip and feed them at least three times a week. Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad, and Ocean Nutrition are all ideal products that are simple to use.
