Do Lion's Cove usually color up like this before turning yellow? I thought they were mostly yellow even from juvenile stage. I've never seen fish larger than 1.5" so what do you think of this male, who seemingly has finished developing? This looks much more like a Cobue Zebroides to me.

But does this male coloration look correct? To me it does not, unless they typically develop from top-down in terms of yellow coloration. These males look fully developed in terms of color.

No, they aren't Lion's Cove. Some look like Cobue, some don't.
