Unless specified as WYSIWYG, the photographs are a representative sample and the product you receive may be slightly different in shape and coloration. Many factors can influence the appearance of corals such as stressful events like shipping, lighting changes, intensity, spectrum, water chemistry, and overall nutrition. Typically speaking if corals lose color during transit they will recover them in a relatively short period in optimal conditions.

Naso lituratus

The Naso Tang, also known as the Orange-spine Unicornfish, or Surgeonfish darkens with age.  When matured, the body takes on a reddish-brown tone and the juvenile striping is supplemented with additional color. The tail will develop into a lyre shape with two elongated streamers.  The face undergoes the largest change. A thin, black mask forms between the eyes and mouth. The mask is outlined with bright yellow and the lips develop a reddish-orange color.


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.
