Our acclimatization center's advise :

Magnificent surgeon fish with a deep-blue body and a sparkling yellow tail. Small, it appreciates living and finding refuge in branch corals like acroporas. Its calm and slow swimming as well as its relatively unaggressive attitude for a surgeon fish, make it a fish that will settle for a more reduced space compared to other Acantharus. Nevertheless, it may reach up to 20cm in an aquarium. It appreciates clear and well-oxygenated water. An algae-nibbler in nature and a big-eater, it will adapt to all types of food as long as they are not too voluminous (pellets and flakes included). We also recommend an additional vegetal food intake (salad, algae, spinach).
