Naso Tang (Naso lituratus)

The Naso Tang or Lipstick tang I brought for my wife she loved the look. We pruchased this from 1″ and it was sold grey with little specked black dots when it got stressed. It is now over 10″ and has all its adult colours and is an amazing fish.

NASO Tang - Lipstick Tang

This is peaceful easy to keep fish that is amazing to look at when it shows off its full sized fins. Our Naso tang is very friendly and will eat anything from all frozen foods to Nori and will eat of my hand.

Behaviour problems in Naso tangs are also normally the result of them being housed in insufficiently big aquariums, so if you are buying one please remember that grow fast.
