The White Tail Yellow Eye Tang, also known as the Whitetail Bristletooth Tang, is a popular saltwater fish among aquarium hobbyists. Here are some care tips for keeping them healthy
The White Tail Yellow Eye Tang requires a tank that is at least 75 gallons in size. They need ample swimming space and a lot of rock work to hide and explore.
The water quality in the tank should be closely monitored and kept within the following parameters: temperature: 72-78°F (22-25°C), pH: 8.1-8.4, salinity: 1.020-1.025, ammonia and nitrite should be at 0 ppm, and nitrate should be kept below 10 ppm.
The White Tail Yellow Eye Tang is an herbivorous fish, so they should be fed a varied diet of algae, seaweed, and other vegetable matter. They will also accept high-quality commercial food designed for herbivorous fish.
The White Tail Yellow Eye Tang is generally peaceful, but they may become aggressive towards other tangs or fish that look similar to them. It's best to keep them with other peaceful fish that are not similar in appearance.
They don't require high levels of lighting but will appreciate moderate lighting that will help promote the growth of algae and other vegetable matter for them to graze on.
When introducing a White Tail Yellow Eye Tang to a new tank, it's essential to acclimate them slowly to the new environment to prevent stress or shock.
Regular water changes and cleaning of the tank are essential to maintaining good water quality and keeping the fish healthy. By following these care tips, you can provide a healthy and happy environment for your White Tail Yellow Eye Tang.
