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 beautiful Ring Tail Tang is bluish-grey accented by yellow-brown spots running longitudinal across its body. A white ring around the base of its tail.
In its natural habitat, the Ring Tail Tang can be found in outer lagoons and seaward reefs. A larger established aquarium with large amounts of live rock is necessary to provide both plenty of swimming room and territories within the live rock.
Although surgeonfish 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. These are great fish for controlling algae in the saltwater fish or reef aquarium.
