A 360 gallon or larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room and places to hide. The aquarium should have a tight-fitting lid to prevent the fish from jumping out to escape. It is aggressive toward other Tangs, but peaceful with other fish, and will not harm sessile invertebrates within the reef aquarium.
The Vlamingi Tang not only changes its color as it grows, but also changes quickly and dramatically from pale to brilliant dark, depending on mood and environment. It is a hardy fish that makes it a very good choice for any beginner aquarist. The Vlamingi Tang is the most aggressive among this peaceful group, so it can survive well in a semi-aggressive tank.
