Description

The Powder Brown Tang, also known as the Powder Brown Surgeonfish, Japan Surgeonfish, and White-faced Surgeonfish, has a brown body with a white mark on the cheek between the mouth and eyes.  Yellow striping runs along the body, against the anal and dorsal fins, forming a wishbone-shaped marking.

A 125 gallon or larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room. It is a very passive fish that will have trouble with other aggressive tangs. Keep only one per tank.

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. This will strengthen their immune system, reduce aggression and improve their overall health.
