Lavender Tangs are originally from the waters of the Pacific Ocean mostly around the islands of Hawaii. Lavender Tangs grow to around 8 inches at full length and should be kept in an aquarium of at least 100 gallons in size to provide plenty of swimming and living room for these fish. Lavender Tangs are natural herbivores and should be fed a steady diet with plenty of seaweed salad, sea veggies, algae wafers and other vegetable preparations. Lavender Tangs are very peaceful and can be kept even by the beginning aquarium owner with little problem.
