hmm

Ok I have had this tang for a while purchased him as a spot-cheek and he was gray with blue spots just on his face, now he is black with a little blue on the fins and his tail fin has a white strip right before the tail and the tail fin is starting to turn white. any Idea what type of tang this is. Sorry for the blur he does not stop moving...

I have seen these two as 2" juveniles for like 8 bucks always listed as surgeon tang. Always seemed ugly, but yours is really nice.
