The Chevron Tang is a dark brown fish with a squiggly light brown pattern that is only endemic to Hawaii. This fish is super rare these days and will do great in a semi-aggressive reef or fish only aquariums. Do not mix with other Bristletooth Tangs. A protein skimmer and UV sterilizer is highly recommended, along with Vitamin C soaked pellets to help prevent disease. This is truly the experienced aquarist's collector fish!
