Unicorn Tang

Unicorn Tang

Also known as the Bluespine Unicorn Tang, Fiantandroka (Madagascar), Nason à épérons bleus (Fiji and France), Longnose Unicornfish, or Longhorn Unicornfish.

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 Unicorn Tang begins developing its "horn" when the fish reaches about 6 inches in length. 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.
