The Tomini Tang aka Flame Fin, is commonly referred to as the bristletooth tomini tang, or Tomini Surgeonfish, that will make a very good addition to any reef tank. The Flame Fin Tomini Tang has a brown body with brown and yellow dorsal and pelvic fins with a white caudal fin.

A 70 gallon or larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room. It is an excellent scavenger and are considered to be the janitors in aquariums. The Tomini Tang will constantly pick at the live rock and glass looking for algae.

It is moderately easy to care for, and is considered reef safe that can be housed with corals and small invertebrates. Though the Tomini Tang is peaceful with other fishes in the aquarium, it can be aggressive towards other tangs. All these factors make the Tomini Tang a very good addition to any reef tank.

Although Tangfish will eat meaty foods along with the other fish in the aquarium, it is important that they are offered plenty of marine based seaweed and algae.
