Not really sure about the color change. ine changed color after a water change about a year ago and never changed back to yellow.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

They also change as a result of age. Older ones = grey.

Breeders have found they can. Females sometimes start off w/ some gray features that become more pronounced. Males usually bright yellow. Check out WWM or advancedaquarist for more details.
