The Chevron Tang is one of the Ctenochaetus Tang. This group of tangs falls under the Bristletooth group. Chevrons start out as a vibrant orange, purple and red markings.
These eye catching markings fade as the fish matures. An adult Chevron looks very similar to a Yellow Eyed Kole Tang, but a higher contrast of black and yellowish-gray lines.
An adult can reach up to 10 inches. They will need a tank at least 125 gallons for grazing and swimming room. These fish can live up to 15 years in captivity. PH of 8.1-8.4, salinity of 1.020-1.025, 72-78 degree water, and DKH of 8-12 are the water parameters for this tang. They are primarily algae eaters, grazing on live rock in your tank, however they will usually actively eat mysis shrimp and other meaty foods or Formula II food by Ocean nutrition. A Chevron Tang will make a great addition to a reef tank or a fish only tank.
