Many factors can influence the appearance of corals such as stressful events like shipping, lighting changes, intensity, spectrum, water chemistry, and overall nutrition. Typically speaking if corals lose color during transit they will recover them in a relatively short period in optimal conditions.

Ctenochaetus flavicauda

The White Tail Yellow Eye Tang, Ctenochaetus flavicauda, also known as the Whitetail Bristletooth Tang, has a stunning red striped body with a rare bright white tail and yellow eyes.  As it's name implies the teeth are bristled in order to help search through the sand for food.

Use caution when housing with other Tangs or Surgeonfish. Similar shaped Tangs can be very aggressive towards each other. Tangs require a natural diet of seaweed and algae, which can be fed to them tied to a rock or by use of a veggie clip. This should be a done a minimum of 3 times a week. Tangs will also enjoy meaty foods with the other fish in your aquarium.

It is well known that tangs have a penchant for Marine Ich and other diseases due to their lack of slime coating. We highly encourage quarantining all fish, but especially Surgeon Fish. We do our best to quarantine all fish at Reef Chasers but there can be absolutely no guarantees.

Tang's of different species can typically get along if they are given ample living space and given that they are introduced at the appropriate size & time.
