Paracanthurus hepatus with white underbelly
Description : Hello

all the Paracanthurus hepatus in Pulau Weh, NW Indonesia have these white underbellies. Anyone know the reason? Season (April), gender, different species ?

p.s. I see Fishbase has a user photo "France, Aquarium specimen, Indian Ocean morph, by Muséum-Aquarium de Nancy - D. Terver" with similar coloration ; I also found an aquarium site that called it "Yellow Belly Blue Regal Hippo Tang Africa ", so I guess it is a geographical variation, yes?
