The dorsal fin is located far back on the body and has a large, black spot at its base, and a black edge. The middle parts may be pale blue or bright red (depending on the variant). The caudal fin is pale yellow with pale blue outer lobes, and a fine black edging. The anal fin has red spots, with a base color of green-yellow. The outer edge is bright red.
