Captive Care: Two Spot Bristletooth Tangs are found in coral-rich and rubble regions of tidal ponds and toward the ocean reefs. Two Spot Bristletooth Tangs contrast among adolescent and grown-up stages. Adolescent Two Spot Tangs have a yellow tail balance while grown-ups have an earthy colored tail with a blue ring around their eyes. This species benefits from the dinoflagellate Gambierdiscus toxic which makes the tissue of this tang species poisonous. This tang has brush-like teeth that it uses to scratch minuscule green growth from the rock. The Two Spot Bristletooth Tang is tranquil with most other inconsequential species yet will probably be forceful with different tangs. It benefits from filamentous green growth, yet a shifted diet that incorporates some sort of meaty food is suggested.
