Convict Tang (Acanthurus triostegus)
15cm, occasionally up to 25cm
Suggested minimum aquarium size when adult:
Will eat frozen Mysis & Brineshrimp will take dried foods readily when settled. Appreciates some vegetable matter e.g. dried seaweed.
Considered reef safe. Will graze on algae
Like many Tangs can be aggressive to newcomers once established, although the Convict Tang is one of the more peaceful, so less of a problem than similar species. Don't keep with other fish of a similar body shape or colouration, but should mix well with other similar size fish. Can be kept with other Convict Tangs in a large enough aquarium if all introduced at the same time.
Tangs are very active swimmers, ensure the aquarium has plenty of open space. Tangs are generally more prone to Whitespot than other marine fish, although Convict Tang are relatively resistant, as Acanthurus Tangs go.

Our Tangs are hand picked from TMC and rested on our premises for at least 7 days and guaranteed feeding before being offered for sale.
