Two Spot Bristletooth / Blue Eye Kole Tang (Ctenochaetus binotatus)
Max Size: 8 inches
Reef Compatible: Yes
Minimum Tank Size: 70 gallons
The Two Spot Bristletooth Tang is a captivating fish displaying vibrant orange-brown coloration with elegant blue lines. Its head is adorned with striking blue spots, and it features two distinctive black spots at the base of its dorsal and anal fins. This remarkable combination of colors makes it a splendid addition to any reef aquarium.
For the Two Spot Bristletooth Tang's optimal well-being, a spacious aquarium of 70 gallons or more is necessary to provide ample swimming room. It exhibits aggression towards other Tangs but maintains a peaceful demeanor when sharing the tank with other fish. While Tangs can consume meaty foods along with other fish, it is vital to offer them an abundant supply of marine-based seaweed and algae. This dietary choice fortifies their immune system, reduces aggression, and promotes overall health. To achieve this, offering dried seaweed tied to a rock or using a veggie clip is recommended, with feeding sessions at least three times per week. Excellent products like Sea Veggies, Seaweed Salad, and Ocean Nutrition are highly suitable and easy to use for this purpose.
