The Tomini Tang is commonly referred as the bristletooth tomini tang, or Tomini Surgeonfish. As a juvenile, the Tomini Tang features yellow, blue, and white highlights, and as it matures the body color changes. It should be kept in a tank not less than 75 gallons, and should be provided with plenty of swimming room. Though the Tomini Tang is aggressive towards other tangs, it is actually peaceful with other fishes in the aquarium. Since it is herbivore, the Tomini Tang should be offered plenty of marine based seaweed and algae for its continued good health The Surgeonfish family consists of fish which are colorful, thin-bodied, and usually have an oval shape. These fish have long continuous dorsal and anal fins and crescent tail fins. The scalpel at the base of their tailfin is very sharp and is used by the fish for protection from predators as well as a way of establishing itself with other fish. These fish are usually seen at reefs eating algae all day long.
