When I first got him in early March (I think), he was black with mostly white and translucent fins.
Then a few weeks later, I was watching him and suddenly thought he looked different. I looked him over carefully and realized he had a lot less white and a lot more black on his fins! The black had been creeping over the white so subtly, and since I see him everyday, I hadn't even noticed. Over the next few weeks, he lost even more white. The gray patch on his head disappeared. He's beautiful! I liked him before, but the spots and stripes are really cool. I do sometimes miss the white patterning though...
On the flap of his dorsal fin, there are stripes. This is a bad photo, as he moved slightly out of focus right as I went to take the photo (as usual), but you can see the striping.
