A sebae has a complete slanting middle bar and a tail that is mostly or completely solid yellow.
A polymnus may have a complete or saddle middle bar with the tail the same colour as the body.

you will almost certainly have a black saddle (A polymnus) as A sebae are less often imported to the US, they are common here in thailand though.

They are very skittish fish especially if wild caught, and reqiure a 60 gallon tank as a minimunm guidline, a 24 gallon will restrict this species, it will probably always display this skittish behaviour.

very nice fish, rough on anemones.
