The Fowler's Surgeonfish is commonly referred to as the Fowleri Tang or Blackspine Surgeonfish. It is a beautiful tropical surgeonfish species. It is best to keep one Fowler's Surgeonfish per tank or in true mated pairs. It grows up to 5 to 8 inch in length and requires a tank of not less than 100 gallon. The Fowler's Surgeonfish thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4 along with maintained specific gravity of 1.020 to 1.025. The Fowler's Surgeonfish is herbivorous and prefers to eat marine algae. 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. A habitat with algae growth is good for them, which in turn helps to keep the algae in an aquarium cropped and in check. With beautiful brown body and blue head the Fowler's Surgeonfish makes a captivating addition to any aquarium. It requires greater care and needs to be kept only by advanced aquarists. 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 found nipping over the corals and that makes it little unsafe to keep in a reef tank.
