Captive Care: The Scopas tangs are one of the most recognizable tang in the trade. These fish are very cool as they are as tall as they are wide and have that long snout that gives them that distinct shape. These tangs are fantastic at keeping algae at bay as they are always cruising the reef nipping at the rocks. They are not bristletooth so they prefer to eat macro algae such as C.proliera and C.Mexicana.
