Character and suggestions regarding care

Acanthurus Coeruleus is a peaceful fish.

Atlantic Blue Juvenile can grow up to 30 cm what is approximately 11 inches. So 1 specimen requires at least 3600cm2 of water surface which is approximately 558 square inch. We recommend you to keep it in fish tanks which are large. (e) Medium aquariums have at least 113 Litres (30 US Gallons). Large aquariums have at least 265 Litres (70 US Gallons). Capacity of very large aquariums is at least 700 Litres (185 US Gallons).

It is not very difficult to keep the Atlantic Blue Juvenile fish. (e) The specific gravity (SG) should be between 1,020 and 1,025, the temperature between 23°C (73.4°F) and 26°C (78.8°F). The pH level should be stable, varying between 8.0 and 8.3 which is usual for marine fish.

As juveniles these fish are all yellow with blue ending on the anal and dorsal fins and only later they become blue. When Acanthurus Coeruleus are young, they will probably fight, but later they will become peaceful.

Atlantic Blue Juvenile needs plenty of swimming places and live rocks with algae. It should be easy to feed this species. You should give to it some flake food made from greens.
