Acanthurus nigrofuscus, lavender.



That was my initial guess but the yellow on his dorsal fin threw me off. Never seen one that yellow on a lavender

Ah, I see it. I still think it's a lavender.

Here's one with an orange-ish dorsal: http://fishbase.org/photos/PicturesSummary.php?ID=4739&what=species

Looks like one to me. Mine had a yellowish orange on him too when he got bigger. I just lost a new one in QT for my 180. Love this tang.
