A while back I brought a very small Juv Chrysurus Angel from AMA. They had it for a long time and nobody seemed to want it. I put it in my reef tank and it has grown quite big over time. The thing is that it never started to show the usually colors of the adult Chrysurus Angel, like the yellow tail, and just recently I notice it starting to show colors on it's body that you would see on a Koran Angel.

All the chryssurus angels I?ve seen as well as my own have had a clean black background and juvis and a lightening of the face area as they age. If it is a hybrid it?s like the way the blues and queens hybrid like f3+

I had a very large adult Chrysurus for a long time, grew it out from a small Juv, and this one was very similar to it when I got it, but very small. It had more black on the body but now it seems to be changing, though it's still dark. It still had the thick white bars and they aren't fading away, and the one towards the back are straight. The front of the head is now developing the spots that you would see on both fish. From the picture in the link, and what others are online, it seems that they look more like Koran but still has the stripe of the Chrysurus.

The ranges of the fish overlap so I mean the gene pool is most likely mixing up. The fish are close enough in shape to likely interbreed :)

Yes, and from the article it seems that it happen a lot in Kenya, though I don't remember seeing many show up. In the end I rather have a Chrysurus, as I don't think this is going to look as nice.

Yeah I mean it?s not like an annularis mixing with an emperor :). I think my queen is mixed with something cause it?s really orange but there would be no clarions around where they inhabit.
