The Bluespine Unicorn Tang, also known as the Unicorn Tang and Unicornfish, and is blue-green to olive in colour, with a blue edge on the dorsal and anal fins. Two bright blue dots appear at the peduncle spines near the tail.
The horn of the Bluespine Unicorn Tang develops when the fish reaches a size of approximately 6 inches. It is located far back on the head and does not extend farther than the tip of the snout. It has large, permanently erect peduncle spines which can easily be tangled in a net or cause injury to the handler.
A 360 gallon or larger aquarium is necessary to provide plenty of swimming room and places to hide. It is aggressive towards its own species, but peaceful with other fish.
The recommended water temperature when keeping Azure Damsel is 72-80° F (22-27° C), the pH-value should be kept in the 8.1-8.4 interval, and the specific gravity should be 1.020-1.025. A carbonate hardness of 8 - 12° dKH is ideal.
