The Black and Gold Chromis Neoglyphidodon nigroris (previously Paraglyphidodon nigroris) starts out life as a dazzling yellow, pointy-finned baby fish. It is accented with two long, horizontal black bars that span the length of its body. The adult coloring is much less glamorous, however. As the fish matures it will loose its black stripes and become grayish brown in front and dusky yellow towards the back. Adult specimens found near Java are said to have even pointier fins and their coloring is very dark, almost black.
