Naso Tang 2-3 in. Hawaii (Naso lituratus)

Naso Tang 2-3 in.  Hawaii (Naso lituratus)
The Naso Tang, also known the Orangespine Unicornfish, is
an active saltwater fish that requires plenty of swimming
room and is suitable for either reef aquariums
or fish-only-with-live-rock aquariums. Hawaiian Naso
Tangs are typically more brightly colored than Naso Tangs
collected in other locations. Juveniles have a grey colored body
with a blue stripe travelling along the dorsal fin and an orange
stripe on the anal fin. As the fish matures into an Adult Naso Tang , the body color can turn a darker reddish brown while the tips of the tail can elongate to create a
lyretail shape.

A saltwater fish or reef tank of at least six feet in length is
recommended. Provide hiding places large enough to
accommodate the Naso Tang. While Tangs will feed on meaty
foods such as brine shrimp and krill, it is necessary to supplement
the diet of all tangs with a algae and plenty of Live Rock for grazing.

Like most Tangs, the Naso Tang may become territorial with
other tangs but rarely bother different types of fish commonly
found in a home aquarium.

Diet should include plenty of algae based flake or pellets, nori, and
fresh greens. Will also accept most small meat items such as
mysis and pieces of krill.
