Pacific Sailfin Tang
Description
Along with the Yellow Tang, the Sailfin Tang is also one of the most commonly seen tangs in the aquarium trade. The drastic black stripes on the yellow to cream background makes this attractive fish a great addition. The Sailfin Tang is fairly hardy and can be kept with many other fish. With caution, you can add other Tangs from the Zebrasoma family with this one, providing they are added at the same time and are the same size. Beneficial in helping pick at hair algae, the Sailfin Tang will spend their day picking at rockwork and occasionally sand in search for hair algae to eat.
Diet
In the wild, Tangs spend their entire day swimming around on the reef in search of marine algae and meaty bits of food they can find. It is recommended to feed dried marine algae (Nori), Spirulina Flakes, and frozen mysis shrimp. Tangs quite easily adjust to captive diets and will eventually eat flake and pellet foods as well. It is recommended to soak flake food in some type of vitamin supplement like Selcon or a garlic supplement in order to help the fish fight off any possible parasite infestation and offer balanced nutrition.
