Clown Tang also known as the Clown Surgeonfish, Lined Surgeonfish, or Blue-banded Surgeonfish are found throughout the Indo-Pacific from East Africa, including the Mascarene Islands to the Hawaiian, Marquesas and Tuamoto islands, north to southern Japan, south to the Great Barrier Reef and New Caledonia.

Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items

The Clown Tang is a colourful and active fish well-suited for large aquariums. The Clown Tang boasts simple but ornate markings comprised of beautiful blue stripes outlined in black on a gorgeous golden yellow background. The ventral half of the Clown Tang is a pale steel grey colouration that provides countershading. The Clown Tang is a reef-associated species typically found near surge zones of exposed seaward reefs.

For best care, the Clown Tang should be housed in an established, well-filtered aquarium. To best recreate a natural reef environment for your Clown Tang, aquascape generously with live rock but be sure to arrange your reef aquarium landscape so there are open areas with ample room to swim. Consider enhancing water movement for your Clown Tang by employing powerheads or wavemakers. Like all Tangs, this member of the Acanthuridae family demonstrates territorial aggression towards its own species, or Tangs in general. Therefore, it is best to keep just one Clown Tang per aquarium, unless multiple Clown Tangs are introduced simultaneously into a very large system.

Although the Clown Tang will accept meaty foods it is essential to offer your Clown Tang plenty of marine-based seaweed and algae foods. This will help strengthen its immune system, reduce aggression, and improve overall health. At least 3 times per week, offer dried seaweed or Nori by way of veggie clip along with Spirulina or algae pellets.
