The Mustard Tang, (Acanthurus Guttatus), also known as the Mustard Guttatus Tang, the White spotted Surgeonfish, has a black body with a white face and white vertical bands along with many white dots scattered across its rear, with a black tail and yellow pelvic fins.
The 250 gallon aquarium, adorned with plenty of live rock, is ideal for both grazing and hiding. There should be ample amounts of rock work for the Mustard Tang to hide, plenty of free space for it to swim, and enough areas for it to graze on algae.
It is aggressive towards other Tangs and Surgeonfish, but peaceful with other fish. Mustard Tangs are best kept in large reef tanks, away from members of its own species, or other tangs. Can be quite aggressive towards others in the family.
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 lettuce clip, and feed at least 3 times per week.
