    That fish is not sick, it is an albino yellow Tang from Hawaii.

    Actually the fish is a comparatively rare color variation of a yellow tang, so your not too far off. Sometimes these are known as koi tangs.

    While the term "albino" is used, they don't seem to be true albinos.

    Frank...you may be only half right..from the article you linked to:

    "However, the remarkable series of photos below taken off Maui by Victoria Martocci clearly shows that the white patches on one Yellow Tang grew larger over a period of years, eventually covering the entire fish. This seems to indicate that the white patches might be caused by a disease rather than by genetic mutation, at least in some cases. As usual, "More research is needed." "

    Yeah, I read it, but that was just about that one particular fish.
    Not all albino fish will loose there color like that. This particular one was sick from the pictures near the end. If I am not mistaken, these fish only come from the Hawaiian islands.

    I'll do a search for more if you like but google is free

    I was first to learn about these from David Saxby's tank http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLRub...eature=related
