Scribbleface Tang, is there such a thing?

My Sailifin has developed a pattern on his face, that is maze-like, and exactly what a Scribble-face Rabbitfish has on its face.

I know you are going to ask me for a pic so after the lights come on (timer) I will get one. He is even more beautiful than he was before. He is just simply gorgeous.

(And for future reference, by the time he outgrows the 65g, we have decided we may upgrade!)

Any opinions?

Thanks Kymmie! :)
He was cute before, but since he developed this pattern on his face last month, he is just gorgeous. And has the cutest personality to boot.

I've watched my Discus get different speckling and marbling to their coloring over time, as they mature. Perhaps it is the same for a tang? Either way, he's a looker!

You have a mature Zebrasoma veliferum, which is a Sailfin Tang. Beautiful fish.

So do all the Z. veliferum 's get a similar pattern on their face? The only pics I have found on the internet they did not have a pattern like that.

Even if they do I still think he is special. Hehe

Wow. They are beautiful.

Love Mr. Hammy too.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
