    Hi. Was wondering if it was possible to have a blonde nasso & lipstick tang in our 280gallon if we got them at the same time ? Does anyone have these 2 together. ?

    Yes, you can get two if you add at the same time.

    They will be fine in system as large as yours. The naso I had in my 150g was the most passive tang I have ever owned. They are beautiful fish when they start to mature and color up.

    OH. thats interesting, I thought they were slightly different. Lipstick slightly darker with black and yellow dorsal fin and blonde nasso was lighter grey with complete yellow dorsal fin, and the colorations around the face is different too ? Obviously from same family but I still think are different fish ?
    I am only a newbie so I may well be wrong. Can someone clarify this please ?
    Thanks

    There is a regular Naso Tang and there is a Blonde Naso Tang.
    This may be what you are thinking of. The Blonde is prettier. Might be dumber, though. ;)

    They are from the same family but have different scientific or species names. They are basically the same fish, just different coloring and markings.
