The Vlamingii Tang, Naso vlamingii, is sometimes known as the Bignose Unicornfish, Vlaming's Tang, Vlaming's Unicornfish, and the Zebra Unicornfish. The adult Vlamingii Tang features a beautiful blue/grey body with scattered electric blue spots all across. In juveniles, these blue dots are even more visible over the Vlamingii's brown/orange body. These colors change right before your eyes as they grow and mature.
