looking for a positive ID

Hi guys just spend lots of oney buying a Black Tang online from a supplier not so local top me but local enough to get my stuff back if he swindled me....
Can anyone confirm that a black tang in juvenile stages can have that much white in his from body or did he deliver me some sort of hybrid scopa?

got this reply back from the guys (or THE guy Bob Fenner Himslef...)

Good evening Sir,This is Dirk from Pattaya Thailand
......Hey Dirk! Reminding me of the Dirt Hash there now!......
Hi guys just spend lots of money buying a Black Tang online from a supplier
not so local to me but local enough to get my stuff back if he swindled
me....
Can anyone confirm that a black tang in juvenile stages can have that much
white in his from body or did he deliver me some sort of hybrid scopa?He
claims he contacted his supplier and they claim it will turn black in time?

......I do think this is a juvenile Z. rostratum. You can see my pix here on
WWM: http://www.wetwebmedia.com/zebrasom.htm
The white will go, and the rostratum will grow longer w/ time/size......

Please advise...Urgent as I would like to confron the supplier here with
some positive (or negative IDs) from experts in the field...
....Don't think this is a Scopas. Bob Fenner.....

so I guess we can go with Mister Fenner expertise, can we...?

How big is he? It looks like a scopas to me, but I'm basing that off the fact that I've seen tiny black tangs that were only black, not white.

Doesn’t look like a hybrid to me either. Fenner knows his stuff so I would listen to him above all

Never seen a juvi black tang look like that. Nose is way short as well.
