AKA:

Acanthurus strigosus

The Silver Spot Tang, Ctenochaetus truncatus is an incredible surgeon fish with an orange hue and shiny dots on the body. It is a Reef Safe fish and must be kept in an aquarium with peaceful fish. The diet should be varied and should be offered foods rich in seaweed, such as Gamma Dry Green Enriched Seaweed.
The common name “surgeonfish” is derived from a characteristic that clearly distinguishes Acanthuridae from other fish families: the spines or “scalpels” on the caudal peduncle, one or more on each side. Based primarily on differences in this characteristic, the family can be divided into three subfamilies: The Acanthurinae, in which the peduncular spine¬† rests in a groove and can be erected in defence during the fights, the Nasinae and Prionurinae in which the peduncular feature is arranged as one or more fixed blades on each side, that are sharp and elongate with age.
