Adults get uniformly black while the juveniles have a bright yellow top and royal blue pectoral fins. Will grow to a maximum size of 15 cm. In nature thay are solitary fish, living in places where coral growth is maximal. A very hard fish will tolerate the "tank cycling" procedure very easily. Will accept any food.
