juvenile gold spotted foxface rabbitfish or other rabbitfish?

Hi All.

First post...

I ordered a gold spotted foxface rabbitfish from a mail-order store. I expected an greyish / blue colored fish with gold spots everywhere.

What came looks like a blue-spotted rabbit fish - its yellow with some vertical black markings only a few spots around the eye.

The mail-order store claimed that it is normal for the juvenile to have no spots and that it will develop spots with time.

I don't believe it. I think they sent me the wrong fish.

Am I wrong?

Could it be true that gold spotted foxface rabbitfish start out yellow and change color and develop spots?

Thanks,

John
