The Black Tang originates from islands in the Indo Pacific. A unique Zebrasoma tang with a long snout to reach algae in hard to reach places. This tang is slightly aggressive, but will add a lot of activity to larger reef or fish only tanks. It is important to feed both meaty foods and algae based foods. UV sterilization and skimmer is required, as Tangs in general are ich and disease magnets. Be careful adding with conspecifics, as they may be aggressive with each other.
