Hi, if you don't mind me asking. How long have you had the orange shoulder tang for? I have had mine about 2 years and it hasnt started to change from juvi colors from adult. I think I read its an aggression thing? The more dominant the fish is, the more likely it is to change, is your Orange Shoulder Tang the boss of your tank?

I look forward to following your build. Good luck!

I don’t believe he’s the boss .
But no one messes with him .
besides mata and foxface he would be the 3rd largest fish .
I bought him about 6 months ago. .
Yellow ish in colour but you can See the transition line where it could be changing soon .

It can happen. They look so innocent and act shy. I bet its all an act.
Pet him ……

ever been poked by a foxface ?
They aren’t innocent at all .
messed me up for 2 weeks

stung on my right hand trying to net he jumped .
The left side of my face , sinus’s , and right hand throbbed .

be careful when handling them !
