The Truncatus Tang is a great fish to add to any larger reef tank, as their bristle-teeth are super helpful in algae control. As a juvenile, this fish is a vibrant yellow and as they mature they become more of a brown-orange coloration with light blue dots along the body. They also exhibit yellow rings around the eyes. This Tang will be peaceful towards other fish and invertabrates, but will be aggressive towards conspecifics. It is very important to feed meaty foods, seaweed, and vitamin c enriched pellets to ensure this fish stays healthy.
