Kole tang 100%. Mine nips at the rocks and glass very often in search of algae. I don't have any hair algae so I have to give it seaweed and such.

I'd stay away from the kole ..Only because its a peaceful, timid tang,may not fare well with your triggers..My purple takes no stuff from my triggers ,and they are one of the most aggressive tangs..Which is what you'll probably want with 2 triggers.

I agree with that. My kole is sometimes bullied by my yellow tang.
