These tangs require ample swimming and hiding room in a tank. It is vital for these tangs to get adequate greens in their diets through supplemental algae, seaweed, and/or vitamin enriched foods. One of the most aggressive species in the Zebrasoma family, they will likely show aggression with other tangs, and especially if there is limited swim space or access to food. They are one of the more hardy tangs, however, but should be added to a system either simultaneously with or after any other additions to prevent aggression.
