Yellow tang

My yellow tang is furious with himself. He sees his reflection in the glass and he keeps trying to stab it with his tail spike. Is this normal?

Is this what happens when you name a tang, 'Pootie' ?

I would think he would chill after a while. They are territorial, but I have never heard of one doing that.

Any one had any problem feeding yellow tang? Or they would grab whatever veggy you feed them? Or do they eat them only when you are away?

If you want to supplement his diet there are several types of algae that you can feed him. You should even be able to get Nori from the asian section of your super market (make sure its unsalted).

yeah, i have nori in there right now, but he hasn't touched it. He was busy picking algae off of hermit crab shells.

Have you tried adding Garlic Xtreme to the algae? You might want to try a different type of algae. Sea Veggies is an excellent brand. Dont forget that tangs are omnivores and will eat meaty foods as well.
