Orange Shoulder Tang or Orange Epaulette Surgeonfish
$54.99 – $189.99
The Orange Shoulder Tang is also known as the Orange Epaulette Surgeonfish, Orangespot Surgeonfish, Orangeband Surgeonfish, and Orange Shoulder Surgeonfish. As a juvenile, it is solid yellow, with just the slightest hint of blue fringing on the anal and dorsal fins. As an adult, the front half of the body turns light gray and the back half takes on a dark gray-blue color. Above the pectoral fins is an eyecatching orange stripe that is outlined by the dark gray color, while the tail takes on a lyre shape.
A 180 gallon or larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room for the Orange Shoulder Tang or Orange Epaulette Surgeonfish. It is not aggressive towards other Tangs. If housing more than one, it is best to add a juvenile to the aquarium that contains an adult.
