    what is their scientific name?

    Seems some places calls a Powder Brown a Powder black. Depending on where they came from. And it can be either one of 2 species.

    They are definitely powder Blacks, also known as whitecheek tang.

    nigricans or japonicus
    Both are also called Powder Brown or Gold Rim



    Acanthurus (glaucopareius) nigricans (Linnaeus 1958), the Powder Brown or Gold-Rimmed Surgeon (and Whitecheek Surgeon to science), Cat Tang in Hawai'i.... The corrected scientific name of this species is A. nigricans (per Randall, 1988);


    Acanthurus japonicus (Fowler 1946), the Japanese or White-Faced Surgeonfish; is also sold as a/the Gold-Rimmed or Powder-Brown Surgeon, confusing it with A. glaucopareius (nigricans) (see below). To further confuse matters, this fish is also sold as the Whitecheek Surgeon/Tang in the aquarium trade...A. japonicus has a much larger white eye patch. Ranges from the Philippines to Japan and is relatively hardy.


    Anyway, nice article to be able to ID them correctly.
    A. nigricans A.japonicus
