Beautiful fish!!! Will mine get more orange on the sides as it ages? It's really colorful but not as good as yours. The guy said it was from bali and it would end up looking amazing when it's an adult

what you see for markings on your fish will most likely stay as to what you see
I got real lucky with the bold and vibrant colors on this fish , my first coral beauty was more blue with very little orange he had a good personality just not the bold coloration
if your looking for a colorful fish find a young fish with colors that pop so than you know your almost sure to have a colorful adult
another sure fire way is to find a male , females tend not to hold there coloration as well

Yah the guy said they have different coloration based on where they are from. The guy at the fish store said he was from Bali.

Very impressive, I hope I can keep mine that long. As for the middle citizen, does that include leaving clams and tube worms alone? I am trying to decide if I want to attempt them at some point.

No, he's a dwarf angel and will peck at almost anything, but he doesn't eat polyps.
