As I mentioned in another thread on the same subject, a hybrid is the result of 2 different species mating and producing offspring. If this fish is a z.scopas, it is not hybrid, it is a color aberrant. The same with the pic of the z.flavescens (yellow tang). They are color aberrants.
If it was a hybrid, it would be a zebrasoma.scopas x flavescens, or whatever else it mated with to produce that offspring.

If you really want 1, watch Divers Den. They occasionally have color aberrants.
