The White Freckled Surgeon is commonly referred to as the Black-Eared Surgeon. The White Freckled Surgeon needs plenty of swimming and living space that is why it is necessary to decorate the aquarium cleverly. The White Freckled Surgeon grows to around 8 inches and needs a tank of at least 100 gallon. It is a natural herbivore and should be fed a steady diet of seaweed salad, sea veggies, algae wafers and other vegetable preparations. The White Freckled Surgeon is very peaceful, but requires care from an advanced aquarist. The White Freckled Surgeon thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. It should be given a diet of marine algae and since it spends most of its time in grazing, you need to introduce plenty of live rocks that encourage the growth of live algae on it. Since the White Freckled Surgeon is a peaceful fish, it does not bother any sessile invertebrates or corals and is considered a reef safe species. With its beautiful pattern and body, it makes a captivating addition to any home aquarium.
