Fun Fact: The Clown coris is interesting for its color patterns, which change as it matures. Juveniles have a white base with black spots on the front half and two large orange spots against a white background on the upper back. At about a foot in length, young adults change in color. Females retain the small black spots and become dark green/grey on the back half. Non breeding males are quite drab in appearance, while breeding males turn a dark green with bands of light green and blue.
