The Sailfin Tang, also known as the Desjardini Sailfin or Ocean Sailfin Tang, has a very unique body shape that can force any onlooker to pay attention to it. Its appearance can practically double in size at will by raising or lowering its sizeable dorsal and anal fins.
A 400 litre or larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room. It is aggressive towards its own species and con-specifics at times, but peaceful towards other fish, so keep only one except in a very large tank.
Many hobbyists suggest that in order to keep Sailfin Tangs in great health it requires a constant supply of filamentous algae which will strengthen their immune system.
Although Tangs 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. This will strengthen their immune system, reduce aggression, and improve their overall health. Offer dried seaweed tied to a rock or use a clip, and feed at least 3 times per week.
