Males are light blue with dark blue stripes. A few show a thin yellow, orange, or red line on their shoulders lower body, and lower fins. A very few may show some green on the lower face like the one in the photo, that may have been the only one to show this color. Their dorsal fin has a white edge and yellow, red, or orange may appear on the rear portion of the dorsal fin as well.
