Blonde Naso Tang vs Naso Tang

Blonde Naso Tang vs Naso Tang are there really any differences?
I guess I am wondering about their hardiness, size, and algae eating abilities.
Are there special requirements that one needs over the other?

Prefer the regular Naso, IMO. On the blondes you can see every little nick/roughed up scale and the darker regular seems to hide it better.


same species, Naso lituratus. it's just a color morph, like a black and white occelaris clown.

Blonds are more expensive? Fancy that!

Dear hobbyist , I've owned both the Blonde and the Naso Tangs. And in my opinion ,the Blonde naso is more colorful . The only visible difference between the two is, the dorsal fin on top of the back, and a touch of yellow orange on the stomach . Other than that , there's not much of a difference .

Thank you all for your help.
Here is some background, SWF ran out of Blonds after I placed my order so now I am trying to have them just change to Naso Tang.
Now if I could only get to reply to my emails to customer service I would be doing great.
Is is normal for them not to reply for a few days?
