You must feed him algea and seaweed. To feed my tangs I feed both of them seed weed selects 3x weekly they will eat brine shrimp to. But they need the algea or seaweed to survive.

Thank you,

I read info on the net that this Naso tang doesn't hurt Coral /reef. Is it true since you already have one?

No its perfectly fine in a reef system. I used to have one till I woke up onemorning and it died. I don't know why but it just died for now apparent reason. I have a purple tang and a powder blue tang. Just watch out the tang family can get ick vary easy. I best thing for that is a UV sterilizer and a cleaner shrimp or cleaner wrasse. I have both and the wrasse does his job better.

There is one fish which you need to be careful of. It's False Cleaner Wrasse. The color patterns are almost the same as the True Cleaner Wrasse. They used mimicry to their advantage. Unsuspecting fish tend to assume that this 'cleaner' is going to clean them off parasites but the false cleaner will instead scrape off their scales which can be quite painful for the unsuspecting fish.

Differences are distinguished by the position of their mouths. True cleaners have mouths pointing forward like those of the freshwater pencilfish. False cleaners will have mouths positioned downward. This downward position allows them to scrape off scales with ease.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
