The Kole Tang is commonly referred as kole yellow eye tang, yellow eye tang, or yellow eye surgeonfish. It has an oval shaped body with bold markings that change with maturity. At the juvenile stage, it basically shows a yellow-gold to tan color combined with stripes and spots. The color gets darkened and changes from blue to burgundy as it grows. The Kole Tang is aggressive towards other tangs, so it is suggested to keep only one per tank. Like all other surgeonfish, the Kole Tang also features a scalpel which is a sharp spine at the base of its tail fin, which is used for protection and helps in establishing dominance. It is well-known for its algae eating habits, and therefore we recommend you to provide them with some live rocks that encourage the growth of natural algae, and also some algae pellet if the algae growth is insufficient. It is best to keep many hiding places and spots for them to rest during night.
