Notes: The Vlamingii Tang, also known as the Vlaming's Unicornfish, or Bignose Unicornfish can grow to be quite large at almost 2 feet in length, however it makes a great aquarium inhabitant as is aggressive toward other Tangs, but peaceful with other fish, and will not harm sessile invertebrates within the reef aquarium.
Although Tangs will eat meaty foods along with the other fish in the aquarium, it is important that they are offered plenty of marine based seaweed and algae. This will strengthen their immune system, reduce aggression and improve their overall health. Offer dried seaweed tied to a rock or use a veggie clip, and feed at least 3 times per week.
