Scopas Tang



Select Variant
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.

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.
