Yellow Tang w/ White Chest

My yellow tang chest area on both sides is a very light yellow unlike the rest of him and like he was before.

His actions show nothing he is still just as much a spaz as he has been for the past month in the tank.

All water paramenters are fine nothing new but a pink tip anemome which is no where near him in the 75 gal tank.

any idea?

Yellow tangs have a white stripe area on thier sides that is normal. Not sure if this is what you are talking about but a pic would help.

I am buying a better camera tomorrow... the one i have is just no good..

No it is not the strip of white that he has at night -- this is below and towards the front of him/her chest area and below where all his organs are

Mine is lighter in that area also. I dont think that is a problem. Had mine for 7 or 8 years. Also is he eating good? And what is he eating?

I am thinking it is me and not him/her I tried to get a good look, I think it is just it's gut area that is a slighly lighter yellow now, think maybe it was just having too much greens to eat.. going to cut back to a pc every 3 days and not every two other than that it only eats brine (frozen) but is not to aggressice to get its share it just does a clean up of whats left floating
