Captive Care: This fantastic fish loves to swim in the open areas of the tank and graze on liverock eating a wide variety of algae. These great-looking fish will change colors as they age, starting as juveniles they are tan with blue, yellow, and white highlights. As Tomini Tangs mature, they will get a blue tail and the dorsal and anal fins will become tipped with bright gold. They get territorial to other tangs that share the same shape as them, so be careful adding other bristletooth tangs. It is also a great suggestion to only keep one Tomini Tang per tank. These active, small, beautiful fish are a fantastic choice for moderately sized tanks!
