The Naso Tang, also known as the Orangespine Unicornfish, darkens with maturity. Naso Tangs from Hawaii are often more brightly colored than those found in other areas. As a juvenile, the Naso Tang from Hawaii is dark gray with a blue stripe following along the dorsal fin and an orange stripe in the anal fin. When matured, the body takes on a reddish-brown tone and the juvenile striping is supplemented with additional colour.
The tail takes on a lyre shape with a yellow vertical
bar towards the back. Two orange patches appear at the peduncle spines
near the tail. 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.
