The Fowler's Surgeonfish is commonly referred to as the Fowleri Tang or Blackspine Surgeonfish. It is best to keep one Fowler's Surgeonfish per tank or in true mated pairs. Since the Fowler's Surgeonfish is a constant feeder in nature and spends most of its time in grazing, it is necessary to add live rocks in the tank that encourages the growth of natural algae. The Fowler's Surgeonfish is peaceful in nature and makes a good fish for a community tank, but may turn aggressive towards similar looking species. The Fowler's Surgeonfish may be found nipping over the corals and that makes it little unsafe to keep in a reef tank.
