I just picked up an adorable CB juvenile regal angel from Biota. Super happy with him but was curious on a color question. He doesn’t have an eyespot like most juveniles I’ve seen. Will he eventually develop the blue eyespot as he matures?

These Regal Angelfish are at various stages of transitioning from their juvenile to adult coloration, and they also each have a unique pattern. It's normal/expected for that juvenile eyespot to fade and become a larger blue area near the back of the dorsal fin over time. I included a photo (From Google) of a juvenile and an adult Regal angelfish for comparison. Since these are captive bred Regal Angelfish, no one can accurately predict what their adult pattern will look like, but each one is unique and beautiful.
