    Trying to identify this little guy!!!

    I recently bought this juvey tang from my lfs. The issue I have is I'm not quite sure what species he is. He was ordered as a mimic tang but he obviously isn't and I may have gotten a steal for $40 Cdn!!! I have him in qt in a 75 gallon but would like to know before adding him in a 125 gallon with a powder blue and a spot face. Here are a few I narrowed it down to:

    1. acanthurus nigricauda
    2. acanthurus leucocheilus
    3. acanthurus bariene
    4. acanthurus blochii

    I don't think a blochii is an option though due to the spot behind the eye. Unfortunatly this is the best pic I could get after nearly photos. Does anyone have any ideas? Please reply if so.
