They're being called naked clowns (get it ) captive bred i believe.

I'd love to see a picture of the tang, a few "aberrant's" have been popping up lately but mostly Zebrasomas.

Well, to answer your question about having a "mutant" fish breed, the likelihood of passion on the mutation is 0. Mutations are not passed on unless its a sexual gene, which i'm pretty sure color mutations arent. Sorry the odds of two perfectly yellow tangs breeding a half-black half-yellow tang is the same as a couple of mutants (Unless you could arange a black tang yellow tang breeding session).

Naked clowns have had the stripes bred out of them through generations and generations of clowns being selected for small stripes >< Some guy with a god complex They are cool though.
