Info

The Little Unicornfish is probably the smallest Naso species and hardly plays any role in the ornamental marine fish trade.

It can be identified by its yellow caudal fin and the blackish penduncle plate with a single spine.


Information about its adult size differs: Debelius /Kuiter states it to grow up to 30 cm as an adult, whereas according to fishbase it reaches only 20 cm.
