    Need help with tang ID

    Hello all,

    My friend recently acquired this 75 gallon tank with three tangs: a Purple tang, a Brown Powder tang, and the third we cannot figure out what it is. Any ideas? It is a yellowish brown color with stripes, and a yellow tail with blue on the tips.





    Thanks for the help!

    It looks pretty big to be a juvenile, I think. It's about 4-5 inches long.

    It appears to me to be an Atlantic Blue Tang in juvenile colors. Google Atlantic Blue Tang, see what you get.

    yeah, 4 to 5 inches would definitely be juvenile for them.
