The Powder Blue Tang is a spectacular specimen with a vivid blue body and a bright yellow dorsal fin and black outlines surrounding its face and tail fin on its tight oval frame.


The Powder Blue Tang needs pristine water conditions and is highly susceptible to ich but should adapt quickly to your aquarium and begin to eat. Only advanced aquarists should attempt this fish.  Once the Powder Blue is established in your tank it may show aggression towards other surgeonfish unless in larger systems. 


Have plenty of live rock in your tank. Tangs will graze on the live rock and it will provide necessary hiding areas and swim pass-throughs. 


Tangs will eat just about all fish foods; Ocean Nutrition Pellets are a perfect diet.  Feed tangs with plenty of marine-based seaweed, as this will keep them healthy.  Try putting seaweed on a veggie clip, or break into small pieces and feed 2-3 times per week.  Ocean Nutrition Seaweed contains garlic which helps the immune system in these colorful fish.
