True to its name, the Elongate Unicornfish has a noticeably more slender or elongated body shape than most of the species in the Nasogenera. It is quite a lively elegant swimmer with this streamlined form. Though it is a ‘unicornfish’, neither the male nor the female will grow a horn. It is very beautiful with a delicate pattern formed by many small spots. Like all of the unicornfish it has the ability to quickly and dramatically change its color from pale to brilliant to dark, depending on mood or environment. Being a very big fish that will reach a length of just under 2 feet in length, this pretty specimen is most suitable for a large show aquarium.
