D.A.N. has been excellent for giving me peace of mind knowing I have coverage for dive travels we do within the United States and worldwide. My policy expires as of January 31st each year, so I went to D.A.N.s website and started the renewal process online, but keep getting a 'need to choose plan" p...

White Tang?

Enjoying some diving time in Kona,
But went snorkeling today and saw this tang.
Wondering if it is an albino, unique coloration or 'sick'?
Appeared to be moving about and feeding normal.

Thanks.
