The Mimic Tang originates from the Indo-Pacific. As a juvenile, this tang is yellow with blue rimming around the eyes and operculum to mimic the Lemonpeel Angel, however as they mature they will turn more light brown. This Tang may show aggression to other Tangs. This fish will appreciate ample swimming room, rock, and seaweed along with meaty foods.
