How big is your tank? They like algae so you will ideally need to supplement it's feeding with Nori or any other algae based food.

About 840l sump included
1800 x 650 x 650
Currently I think I have enough algae for him to graze to its hearts content ;)
But I will supply nori as well if my tank size will suite him?

That is not a dussumieri - they have a white spine socket. It's probably Acanthurus blochii.

Thanks....seems like it is very difficult to positively identify some species...
He changes so much colour it's amazing. Sometimes theres a definite white ring at the base of its tail...then it would turn the whole tail white and then just for fun it would turn totally grey....just when Im certain that I have a 100% identification. ....
Might be a
Chameleon tang
Great fish though ...always following everyone close to the tank in the hope for a treat:rolleyes:

I'm also leaning more towards yellowfin surgeonfish. ...
Bad news because my tank isn't big enough for a yellowfin
