If you follow the time stamps on pictures: Lieutenant undergoes a steady progression with colors and markings getting more pronounced. From a blurred straight line;  his - trademark - has now turned into a dark horseshoe. Most marine fishes display fixed and flashy colors... But Acanthurus tennentii offers an ever changing palette determined by lighting and mood. However  :)  if your tank is lighted by a Disco Style Blue setup... you might miss out on the fun...


... and yes... Snowball does steal the meal away sometimes...
