Tangs & Surgeonfish


Tangs are one of the most sought after saltwater fish in the aquarium hobby.

Tangs are commonly referred to as Surgeonfish, include about 75 species, and can be found throughout the world’s tropical oceans. Many of the species are brightly colored and popular for both the reef tank or fish only aquarium. Tangs can become quite large and should be housed in larger aquariums, because they are active swimmers and many of the tangs can grow to well over 8 inches as adults.

There are many different varieties of tangs and temperaments. When adding Tangs to your home aquarium we suggest adding to the aquarium in groups to split up the aggression common to this species.
