Notes: Convict Tangs might not be the most colorful saltwater fish you can find, but with their flashy stripes and charming personality, these surgeonfish can be wonderful additions to the right saltwater tank. The black stripes on this tang harken to an old-fashioned prison jumpsuit, hence the name Convict Tang. In the wild, Convict Tangs live in large schools and spend their days foraging for food, namely seaweed/marine algae. Convict Tangs can be aggressive toward other tangs and fish of similar body types, but they are typically peaceful with other nonaggressive fish.
