The Sohal Tang is a hardy and generally reef safe fish that can be challenging due to its potential size and aggressive nature. The Sohal's alluring beauty of contrasting and sometimes vermiculated stripes alternate from light to dark with most of its fins being jet black with electric blue outlining them. There is also a patch of orange post gill plate and on the peduncle where the Sohal's sharp, boney "scalpel" lies.

Sohal Tangs can be very aggressive and should not be kept with other Tangs. They tend to be well-behaved with old tank mates but can be very aggressive to any new additions. They are only suited for large aquariums with other fish capable of handling their aggressive and domineering behavior. They do well in very large reef systems with no other Tangs, and plenty of swimming room. It is recommended that they be the last fish introduced into the aquarium since they can be extremely territorial and aggressive toward tank mates. 

Although Tangs will eat meaty foods such as enriched brine and mysis shrimp, it is recommended that Tangs are offered plenty of marine based seaweed and algae foods. Algae based diets are important for the Sohal’s overall health and longevity and should be fed regularly. High quality flake and pellet foods will also be accepted.
