Will post a pic up when I'm home. The place I brought it from told the name it was something like yellow scope or something, the price is usually around £80 where as a normal yellow tang is around £30 it's looks exactully the same apart from black blotches in it which get darker as they grow, that's what I was told

How large your tank btw?

And yes please do post bigger pics when you can, since from that distance it just looks like a normal yellow
Thanks,
