Scopas Tang, also known as the Brown Scopas Tang is yellow dorsally, brown, and yellow ventrally. The color gradually gets darker from the front to the back. The body is covered in exquisite intricate, delicate, and light blue marks. The tail is solid brown. Juveniles tend to be a bit more attractive with bigger dorsal and anal fins as well as a little purplish-colored body.

A 125 gallon or greater aquarium is required to give ample swimming space. It can be aggressive toward its own species, or the tangs, in general. It is should be kept in a single per tank.

While Tangs can eat meaty meals as do others in aquariums, it’s crucial that they receive lots of seaweed derived from marine sources and algae. This will boost the immune system of Tangs, decrease aggression, and improve overall health. Give dried seaweed that is tied to a rock, or an organic clip and feed them three times a week. Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad, and Ocean Nutrition are all ideal products and are extremely simple to use.
