I believe this to be the norm with these tiny captive bred tangs...some quarter sized.

Interesting. Could be the picture also. I'm just horrible at keeping tangs so I gave up 2 years ago lol.

It is eating very well. It is just young and a little translucent still. It should turn a richer yellow as it matures.

Yeh, the captive bred look like this but seem perfectly healthy.  I believe they color up more as they mature.

Awesome shot! The first time I saw a baby captive bred yellow tang was at MACNA 2018, I couldn't believe they were nearly transparent at first!
