Sleek unicornfish

The Sleek unicornfish lives in the reef-associated, brackish, marine, depth range 6 - 150 m , usually 10 - 137 m environment.

The Sleek Unicornfish is also called the Blacktongue Unicornfish or Unicorn Tang. Though it doesn't develop a horn like other members of the Naso genus (unicornfish), when it reaches just under 10 inches (25 cm) in length it does develop a black tongue. More
