Starting out life as an attractive and bright yellow specimen, the Orange Shoulder Tang will lose it’s juvenile coloration around 2 to 4 inches in length and becomes a gray/green fish with a bright orange marking on the shoulder.
Tends to get along with most other tangs with the exception of other Orange Shoulder Surgeons. Beneficial in helping pick at hair algae, the Orange Shoulder Surgeon will spend their day picking at rockwork and frequently in the sand as well in search for hair algae to eat.
In the wild, Tangs spend their entire day swimming around on the reef in search of marine algae and meaty bits of food they can find. If underfed, it is often noted that tangs will likely pick at large polyp stony corals.
It is recommended to feed dried marine algae (Nori), Spirulina Flakes, and frozen mysis shrimp. Tangs quite easily adjust to captive diets and will eventually eat flake and pellet foods as well.
It is recommended to soak flake food in some type of vitamin supplement like Selcon or a garlic supplement in order to help the fish fight off any possible parasite infestation and offer balanced nutrition.
