Captive Care: This Tang is like no other, With its transition from a bright yellow fish as a juvenile up until it is full-grown this stunning fish is a looker! With its Chocolate brown color with Yellow undertones and Black fins, it really stands out from the crowd. This could be one of my favorite-looking surgeonfish. If you have a large tank and are thinking of a Bristletooth Tang this might be the one!
