Could be off here but I don't see a caudal spike?

Looks like it may actually be an Angel (genicanthus melanospilos)

Cheers
Steve

It is really hard to tell, a better pic would be great. What did the LFS say it was? My best guess is adult Chocolate tang (Acanthurus pyroferus). Please do not take this the wrong way, but its better practice to identify tank additions before you add them. This will ensure you do not run into compatability issues and that you have the proper environment to house it...Lando

My husband was the one who purchased it and the LFS stated that he will fit in just fine. The only thing is my husband forget the correct name. I told him next time to write it down on a piece of paper. MEN LOL. Especially since he was expensive. I might just need to go back to the LFS he got him from to ask.

Here is a link to the bristletooth. Does this look like your fish?
The colors may not be exact.
