    Iv had this coral beauty for a couple of weeks. When I received it looked different, my thoughts where it would get its colors back. It has changed color! its only brighter, with some very deep red on anal fin, while pelvic fins and belly have gone bright orange. The body is a deep yellow/golden with brown spots near tail area. This fish has no lines at all! not like a normal coral beauty.

    Bad pic!

    Looks like a rusty angel Centropyge ferrugatus.

    Fins are a little blue though. Might be a hybrid.

    the body does look a bit like a rusty. Just more yellow with fewer spots. If it is a hybrid, then I'm well chuffed! It is a beautifull specimen! How comments are hybrids in the trade? Iv never seen one. @memos Janitor

    One of the fish with the most color diversity.
