Thanks. I actually thought it was the other way around where males are usually more colorful but wasn't sure if region difference has anything to do with patterns in this case.

I would say the all silver one is what they call a humpnose unicorn tang (Naso tuberosus) and the one with spots on it is a lopezi or vlamingi tang. Your two tangs are differant types of tangs. hth

also to say why I said a lopezi or vlamingi, its very hard to tell the difference between these two. they are sometimes miss labled in stores and are very hard to tell the difference between.

excellent shot is right--hate to ask--but does it have a small case of ich on its pectoral fin and side

I've had him for about a year and I think he is getting close to 5 inches. It's hard to tell because he is in a corner bow front and it kind of magnifies everything. He will be moving into my 220 in about a month.

Yep.

I sold my house and this inwall tank was included in the sale. The fish and live rock were not included.
