As a juvenile this Tang will have a background color of brown/tan with blue, white and yellow accents. The Adult will have a more solid color body with a bluish tail and golden highlights on the edges of the anal and dorsal fins. Somewhat timid, it should have plenty of mature Live Rock with open areas for swimming. It will eat algae based diets along with some smaller meaty foods. While it shows aggression towards other tangs, it will generally leave other fish alone.
