The Blonde Naso Tang is an attractive surgeon fish. Due to its mouth?s appearance similar to the pouted orange lips it is named a Lipstick Tang or Orange Spine Unicornfish. With its orangish lips and a pair of spines surrounded by a bright orange area on either side of the caudal peduncle, makes the Blonde Naso Tang fish to stand out of the crowd of other fine fishes. Not only this, its bright yellow line running from the back of the mouth till the eye and bold colored stripes on the top and sometimes bottom fin gives the Blonde Naso Tang a true statement of beauty. It is mainly found in west and central Pacific. The Blonde Naso Tang is very personable fish that once it is comfortable, it can then be trained to accept foods from its keeper?s hand. Being amicable, it can easily get along with other inhabitants. It is also a peace loving fish and hence does not disturb or harm any other inhabitants. The Blonde Naso Tang needs a plentiful space along with some live rocks and there it is all set to settle down smoothly in the given reef tank. The Blonde Naso Tang can be provided with some meaty foods and a variety of algae. They are very active swimmer, hence need lot of space for swimming during the day as at night they tend to sleep behind rocks and hide themselves from predators. Like all other Nano species, the Blonde Naso Tang has the ability to change its body color quickly and dramatically, depending on its mood and environment. When it is excited, it hides in the reef and shows almost black body with gray splotchy patches. Special care is needed while catching the Blonde Naso Tang and a double bag is recommended to use instead of a net.
