Description: Recruits develop three stripes behind the eye with the lowest stripe extending in a straight line across the jaw, not continuous under the eyeball until about 14 mm SL. Notably, recruits have no melanophores extending down from the orbital rim at 6-7 o'clock toward the corner of the jaw. A row of melanophores develop at the lower base of the pectoral fin after transition and the median-fins are heavily speckled. Two colon-like rounded spots are present at the base of the caudal fin and rows of X-shaped markings develop along the sides of the body.
