The Blonde Naso Tang is also known as the Orange-Spine Unicornfish or Lipstick Tang. As these fish mature their colors darken. As a juvenile they are dark gray with a yellow stripe on the dorsal and anal fin. As they mature they take on a darker bluish gray color and their tail takes on a u-shape with two yellow patches appearing near the tail. A very thin black masks form between their eyes and mouth and their lips are yellow. They are usually not aggressive towards other fish in the tank but will fight with other Tangs. The Blonde Naso prefers to school with other Naso Tangs as juveniles but as adults they prefer to be alone.
They are reef compatible and should be kept in a 135 gallon tank or larger with plenty of space to swim. They prefer large tanks and are known to grow more quickly then many other fish.
They will eat the meaty food you feed other fish in your tank but they are herbivores and will eat seaweed and algae. These types of food will help strengthen their immune system and will keep them calm and less aggressive. They should be fed algae or seaweed at least 3 times a week.
