Flame Fin Tang also known as Bristletooth Tomini Tangs are great at keeping algae under control. They are great fish for reef aquariums, and will not bother corals, clams, or invertebrates. Tomini Tangs are often aggressive towards other tangs, but should not bother other fish. Keep only one Tomini Tang per aquarium. Provide plenty of live rock for it to graze on.

In the wild, Ctenochaetus tangs spend their day swimming around on the reef in search of marine algae and any meaty bits of food they can find. It is therefore recommended to feed new arrivals fresh algae. Purchasing (and then culturing your own) live macroalgae like ogo algae (Gracilaria parvisipora) is an excellent idea if you plan to keep any tang, but especially tangs from the genus Ctenochaetus and especially new arrivals. Even tangs with mouth trauma will be able to consume this food, and they should recover fairly quickly.

Once acclimated, dried marine algae (Nori), spirulina flakes and frozen mysis shrimp will usually be taken with zeal. Most Ctenochaetus tangs will quite easily adjust to captive diets and will eventually eat just about any flake or pellet foods. Try marine algae (e.g., Nori, SeaVeggies Seaweed, SeaVeggies Flakes, Sun-Dried Seaweed, etc.), and Spirulina flakes. Periodically offering an “algae rock” with a mature growth of macroalgae is a welcome addition to this fish’s diet.

Maximum Size: The Flame Fin Tang grows up to 6 inches.

General Size Specifications: A small sized Flame Fin Tang usually comes in the size of 2-3 inches, medium variety about 5 inches and the larger ones reaching about 7 inches

Minimum Tank Size: The Flame Fin Tang prefers a tank of at least 50 gallons with plenty of places to hide & swim. Keep water quality high (SG 1.020 - 1.025, pH 8.1 - 8.4, Temp. 72 - 78° F).

Habitat: Range: Indo-Pacific, Solomon Islands, Fiji

Feeding and Diet: The Flame Fin Tang is a herbivore and likes to eat Dried Seaweed (best), marine algae, mysid shrimp, Spirulina, Romaine Lettuce (blanched), fresh seaweed, and other meaty treats.
