Spotted Unicorn Tang

Spotted Unicorn Tang

Also known as the Blue Unicorn Tang, Longnose Unicorn Fish, Damasi ni tubalevu (Fiji), Kala lolo (Hawaii), or Isdang ilong (Philippines).

Tangs are often called surgeon fish because of the scalpel-like spine at the base of its tail.  The usually solitary and territorial tang will swing its tail at a target as a means of defense. Both its color and shape change with age. The Spotted Unicorn Tang changes from a rounder silver juvenile, to a majestic blue and black longer bodied fish as an adult. A tank with rocks and décor to provide several hiding spots and plenty of swimming space is recommended. Tangs tend to be most aggressive towards fish of similar form and color. To minimize aggression in smaller aquariums it is recommended to have only one Tang.
