This is a tricolor morph scopas tang. Beautiful fish.

Awful lot of things that can cause that - would suggest very strongly not adding anything else (and putting the scopas in another tank) until you figure out what's causing the issue...

They're relatively rare -but they are still a relative of the common yellow tang. Give that article a read - basically it discusses the fact that while its a related species it is slowly diverging from the common yellow enough that it may become its own species in the future.

I would start a new thread for the lion - might also want to circle what you're talking about in the pic since I cna't seem to pick out what you're talking about...
