These Gem Tangs have been through our quarantine process and have passed our 5-point inspection.  They are ready to go to their new homes!

Zebrasoma gemmatum

A rare and highly-sought after surgeon fish. The gemmatum tang also known as the gem tang is gorgeous and striking. A stunning black body is adorned with a starry array of white spots. Bold yellow tail and accents along the pectoral fin add a burst of color. One of the most coveted fish in the marine aquarium trade, this fish when taken care of properly is a rewarding and attractive addition to any marine aquarium.

Use caution when housing with other Tangs or Surgeonfish. Similar shaped Tangs can be very aggressive towards each other. Although Tangs will eat meaty foods along with the other fish in the aquarium, it is important that they are offered plenty of marine based seaweed and algae.

Tang's can typically get along if they are not the same species and/or ample living space is provided given they are introduced at the appropriate size & time. The powder blue tang can be aggressive, especially when larger so often times it is the last fish that a reef keeper will add. 

As with all marine fish, tangs will benefit from a healthy diet of Live Phytoplankton.
