    Default Oh-my how they grow

    The wife and I were talking about our fish that we have had for quite some time now, and it occurred to me that our yellow minic tang has really developed into a completely different looking fish. And by that I mean a different look than what they normally develop as they grow

    When I got this guy a little over two years ago, he was a younger fish, I would say still a juvenile only starting to get his adult coloring. Here are some before and after pics so you can see what I mean

    Before pics from when he was first added to my 90 gallon reef tank

    And now for some pics taken today. I am amazed at how black he has gotten over the past 6 to 8 months. That certainly is not typical for a yellow mimic tang, but a welcome surprise for sure.

    What's your parameters Cliff? Maybe your salinity or something is off? . . . Nah just joking

    Fish looks great bud, interesting though how drastically it has changed over time
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Thanks guys. Just as a point of comparision, below is a pic of what a typical yellow mimic tang looks like when it is fully grown and matured. I googled the below pic off the interwebs




    I've often wondered why he is so much darker than most tangs. I'm guessing something in his diet or the mixture of greens, flakes, and froozen foods is aggreeing with him.

    I think your fish looks much cooler than the standard.

    He's a lovely fish, from my googles it looks like there are a few varieties of mimic tangs.

    The kind here looks quite a bit like your coloration:
