Thompson's Tang also known as the Night Surgeonfish or White Tail Tang are found from East Africa, including the Mascarene Islands to the Hawaiian, Marquesan, and Ducie islands, north to southern Japan, south to 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
In the wild, Thompson's Tang are found schooling in steep outer reef slopes and drop-offs over coral and sand. They prefer feeding on large gelatinous zooplankton, fish eggs, and crustaceans. Provide plenty of water movement and aeration to best replicate their natural habitat.
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.
