While I can't imagine band without tuba, Euphonium is much better at solo playing. Tuba is suited for bass line only, Not for virtuoso playing. Euphonium is way more flexible for that. It has bigger range and clearer sound than tuba, As well as euphonium can produce faster fingering which gives bigger range for pieces

Euphonium may get more music written with solos for them, But Tubas can be the same or better. When you do here a tuba solo, You will know what instrument it is opposed to the confusion of trombone vs euphonium. In addition, When you do hear a tuba solo that sounds good, It feels better because of the idea that tubas are just used for bass lines. For example, The video attached to this link is a tuba solo that is way different than the normal idea.

The confusion between euphonium and tuba is in no relation to its beauty. I can play both Tuba and Euphonium and played tuba in high school and can assure that the Euphonium is WAY better suited for solo playing. The tuba shouldn't necessarily be limited to bass lines only though.
