Fish ID - Threespot angelfish - Apolemichthys trimaculatus ???
Description : Hi. This fish was seen on a dive at Siaes tunnel, Palau (06-11-2019).

It looks like the three spot angelfish, but it lacks the whitish colored anal fin.
This fish had a bright yellow anal fin. The black edge of the fin is present.
Is this a known color variation, or is it a similar looking (sub)species ?

I will send the link to the youtube-video by email.

Any suggestions ? Thank you !

When viewed on a Samsung Tab S3 tablet, the anal fin of the fish in the video shows no white.

However, looking at the video on Youtube, it does seem to be somewhat whitish .....

So, probably it is the Threespot angelfish.
