A slightly hardier fish than the powder blue. In my opinion their colour is a bit bland but you do get the odd exception which has more vivid colours. These fish require large tanks with lots of open space as they're pacey fish and like to dart around. They're mainly herbivores and like grazing algae and seaweeds. Shouldn't be kept with other tangs but can potentially be kept in a large shoal of other powder brown tangs providing the tank is large enough. They can become fairly tame fish, eating out of the owners hand even. At a high risk of disease so make sure you keep the tank in good condition and free of any pollution.
