Mustard Tang also known as the Jewel Tang, White Spotted Tang or Whitespotted Surgeonfish are found around the oceanic islands in the western Indian Ocean to the Hawaiian, Marquesan and Tuamoto islands, north to the Ryukyu Islands, south to New Caledonia and Rapa.
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 Mustard Tang occurs in large schools on the reef. The body of the fish is grey with two silver stripes towards the front half, and the back half is dotted with many white spots. The tail and the pelvic fins are a striking yellow that offsets the gray colour of the fish.
A larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room for the Mustard Tang. An aquarium decorated with large amounts of live rock is ideal for both grazing and for hiding places. It is aggressive towards other Tangs and Surgeonfish, but peaceful with other fish.
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 lettuce clip, and feed at least 3 times per week.
