Orange shoulder tang ?

Whats up guys? I was wondering about how long it takes orange shoulder tangs to change to there adult color? I've had one now for about 5 months in a 125 long and he's like 5 or 6 inches long. He's not yellow anymore but not adult color either...kinda solid green with black spot where the orange should start. I've been feeding dried green seaweed and formula two w/selcon. Thanks for any feedback!!

Now Im confused...I just saw a post from a guy named Sango that had a pic of a fish he called Tennitti tang. I've never heard of this tang but it looks like a mirror image of mine that was sold as an ''Orange shoulder tang''. Now Im wondering if I even have one.

two completely different fish..

the orange shoulder tang is also known as an olivaceous tang

http://www.petsolutions.com/Orange+S...-16238-C-.aspx

the tennenti is a completely different fish

http://www.petsolutions.com/Tennenti...-16238-C-.aspx

sometimes lfs get away with selling the orange shoulder as a mimic tang, similar resemblence

from looking at your pic the fish looks more like a tennenti than the orange shoulder, you can tell by the markings

Yeah my tang made it to Hollywood! He is light blue in color and at night he turns almost black. He is a great fish to watch.

LOL!! ......Dumb LFS I asked the guy if he could get me an orange shoulder tang and he said sure, check back with me next tuesday. So I went back and he had this tennenti that he told me was an ''orange shoulder'' in the middle of changing from juvenile color...guess I got ripped!

Yeah, He also changes color alot like black to light blue to green...depending on what he's doing like eating ect. he is a cool fish ..I'd almost hate to take him back theres just alot of other fish I'd rather keep. He gets along good with my yellow tang, Im thinking I might run in to problems if I take him back and add another tang....what do you think?
