I’ve been eyeing this lieutenant tang from LA Divers Den for a few days now. But why does it look so colorful compared to the ones on google.

See for yourself. Google lieutenant tang…I personally don’t like them at all. But this one from Divers Den looks completely different and so nice.

My lieutenant tang had those yellow tones when he was a juvenile. He grew out of them. By the way, the second photo does not do this fish justice. Mine has more blue around this fins and tail than the second photo shows.

you know what? You are so correct. I found these photos from google. Wow. They are really pretty.

My only concern is that some look like ugly ducklings. I don’t know why LA uses that ugly photo on their website. Anyway.
