Sample video below! (pictures above are examples only)
Size approx. 4-4.5" - has adult teardrop - Needs a 6ft 150 gallon or larger. I will ask...
One of the most sought after & prized of all Tang fish, the Achilles Tang is a show stopper with it's rich deep body color blazed with glowing orange, especially the iconic teardrop marking at the base of it's body. We only have so much room in our tanks! Be sure to get your favorites & if this is one of them, grab it when you see it as I don't often have them due to availability from my favorite supplier!
Introduction: I'm usually an independent fish who likes to swim about alone but will at times swim with other Tang cousins. Other Tangs that have body shapes like mine make me want to chase them a bit & establish who is higher in the Tang pecking order but once that is established I usually mind my own business, preferring to scope out the rocks for a tasty tid-bit!
Feed Me Daily: Nori Seaweed in the am then PE Mysis Shrimp & ON Formula 2 flakes in the PM. This is what I'm fed at AquaCorals so if you feed the same at home I should eat right away & stay healthy for you!
