The Half Black Mimic Tangmake excellent additions to your reef community because they are peaceful, readily accept prepared foods, and won't outgrow their surroundings too quickly. The Half Black Mimic Tang closely resembles the Halfblack Dwarf Angel Fish (C.vrolikii) to help avoid predation in the wild.
In its natural habitat, the Half Black Mimic Tang is constantly on the move in search for filamentous algae. A larger aquarium with plenty of water movement, large amounts of live rock, ample swimming room, and territories within the live rock is necessary.
Although tangs will eat meaty foods along with the other fish in the aquarium, it is important that they are offered plenty of marine based seaweed and algae foods. This will strengthen their immune system, reduce aggression and improve their overall health. Offer dried seaweed tied to a rock or use a veggie clip, and feed at least 3 times per week.
