The Blonde Naso Tang is an attractive surgeon fish. The adult male features a beautiful streamer display which makes it the centerpiece of any aquarium. Due to its mouth?s appearance similar to the pouted orange lips it is named as red lip surgeonfish, or Orange spine surgeonfish. With its beautiful lip like structure 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. 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. It is very active swimmer, hence needs lot of space for swimming during the day as at night they tend to sleep behind rocks and hide themselves from predators. We recommend you not to add the Blonde naso tangs, until the aquarium is well established and stable with prolific algae growth and some detritus for the fish to eat. One should keep the more than one Blonde Naso Tang, since it is not that peaceful to its own species and causes some territorial issues. It is considered reef safe but with caution, as sometimes it might nip hard and soft corals if not properly fed. Be careful while handling this fish, as the scalpels can inflict painful wounds, also the spines may also get entangled in the net, so the use of bucket or a plastic bag is suggested while catching it. Since the Blonde Naso Tang doesn?t produce mucus to protect itself against skin ailments, it gets affected from the ailments such as marine ich.
