The Achilles Tang is one of the most prized fish in the marine fish-keeping hobby. It is very challenging, but rewarding, to keep in the home aquarium. This fish is a very dark navy color, with highlights of white near the operculum with a bright orange spot on the peduncle region. This fish is very sensitive, so a UV sterilizer and protein skimmer are REQUIRED. The Achilles Tang may fight with other Tangs, so it is best to add this fish last or in a group with other tangs. Do not mix with other Acanthurus Tangs such as Powder Blue, Powder Brown, or Goldrim Tangs. A diet that consists of seaweed, fatty frozen foods, and pellets with Vitamin C is very important!
