Naso Elegans

The Blonde Naso Tang, also known as the Lipstick Tang, or Surgeonfish darkens with age.  When matured, the body takes on a bluish-grey tone and the striped markings coloration will become enhanced. The tail will eventually grow and develop in a lyretail shape culminating in two elongated streamers.  


Use caution when housing with other Tangs or Surgeonfish. Similar shaped Tangs can be very aggressive towards each other and usually will not tolerate their own species at all. Tangs require a natural diet of seaweed and algae, which can be fed to them tied to a rock or by use of a veggie clip. This should be a done a minimum of 3 times a week. Tangs will also enjoy meaty foods with the other fish in your aquarium.


It is well known that tangs have a penchant for Marine Ich and other diseases due to their lack of slime coating. We highly encourage quarantining all fish, but especially Surgeon Fish. We do our best to quarantine all fish at Reef Chasers but there can be absolutely no guarantees.

Tang's of different species can typically get along if they are given ample living space and given that they are introduced at the appropriate size & time.
