Husbandry

The Razor Surgeonfish should be easy to care for, provided the tank is really large enough.

It is a highly social surgeonfish which always occurs in shoals.

With a length of 23.6 inches (60 cm) as an adult and its preference for more temperate and even cold waters, however, to keep a specimen of this surgeonfish will probably remain a dream for hobby aquarists.
