It’s been a while since we shared a nice mutant Zebrasoma tang so how about a nice large white-face yellow tang? This bicolored beauty was obtained by Wayne’s Ocean World Hawaii and it was sent to Reefwise in Chicago Illinois.
As has been expressed innumerable times by our readers on this blog and all over the world, some people abhor any deviation from purely yellow Zebrasoma flavescens. That’s fine, to each his own, but for the rest of us, hot dawg! We love the way the white face seems to frame the fish’s yellow eyes and even makes them pop to an almost orange coloration.
The white faced front is balanced out ever so slightly with a bright white tail and the size of this bicolored white yellow tang is nothing to scoff at either. A smattering of white and clear patches in the dorsal and anal fins also adds to making this unique yellow tang even more interesting. The white-face yellow tang joins a shortlist of white-yellow tangs and other colorful scopas tangs but if history is any indication, it certainly won’t be the last.
