What a difference a month makes...

This pic was taken at the beginnng of the thread:




Here is the same fish....one month later:





Still a lot of yellow and not much blue/black yet, but he is well on his way to becoming a man. I give him another month or two before the transition is complete.

This male has even more coloring (intensified by the presence of the ladies of course):
