The Clown Tang is as beautiful as it is a great addition to a community tank where you will only have a single tang. Care should be taken to ensure highly oxygenated seawater as it is very active. Do not add any tangs or other fish that are similarly shaped (smaller angelfish) as it may likely pick and harass. Beneficial in helping pick at hair algae, the Clown Tang will spend their day picking at rockwork in search for hair algae to eat.
In the wild, Tangs spend their entire day swimming around on the reef in search of marine algae and meaty bits of food they can find. If underfed, it is often noted that tangs will likely pick at large polyp stony corals. It is recommended to feed dried marine algae (Nori), Spirulina Flakes, and frozen mysis shrimp. Tangs quite easily adjust to captive diets and will eventually eat flake and pellet foods as well. It is recommended to soak flake food in some type of vitamin supplement like Selcon or a garlic supplement in order to help the fish fight off any possible parasite infestation and offer balanced nutrition.
