Powder Blue Tang – (Acanthurus Leucosternon)

The Powder Blue Tang, also known as the Powder Blue Surgeonfish, boasts an elegant oval body adorned with vibrant, eye-catching markings. Its vivid colors include varying shades of blue, beautifully complemented by accents of yellow and white. Bright yellow highlights grace its dorsal and pectoral fins, while striking blue-black markings define its face and tail.

Tank Requirements:

  • To accommodate its active nature, a spacious aquarium of 125 gallons or more is essential.
  • Be cautious: the Powder Blue Tang can be extremely aggressive toward other Tangs or Surgeonfish, especially those with similar forms and colors. In smaller systems, it’s best to keep only one.

Feeding Tips:

  • While the Powder Blue Tang will consume meaty foods alongside other tank inhabitants, prioritize marine-based seaweed and algae.
  • Regular seaweed offerings strengthen their immune system, reduce aggression, and enhance overall health.
  • Secure dried seaweed to a rock or use a veggie clip, feeding at least 3 times per week. Consider products like Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad, or Ocean Nutrition for optimal results.

Approximate Purchase Size:

  • Small: 1" to 2"
  • Small/Medium: 2" to 3"
  • Medium: 3" to 4"
  • Medium/Large: 4" to 5"
  • Large: 5" to 6"
