The Convict Tang, also known as the Convict Surgeonfish, has a stunning white to silver body highlighted by six vertical black bars. The peduncle spines (near the tail) are rather small compared to that of other Tangs.
A great addition to the reef or fish only aquarium. It requires a large area in which to swim - at least a 125 gallon aquarium. It should not be included in a tank with other species of Tangs, since they will harass it. It will live peacefully with other Convict Tangs if all are introduced to the tank at the same time.Convict Tang, Acanthurus tripstegus available at the best price from Kraken Corals
