Tangs

I'm wondering bout this tang.

Kole Yellow Eye Tang

Reason I'm wondering: I've seen that is mostly brown. However, I came across this tang and it's blue. Is it the same thing?

Yahoo! Image Detail for - http://www.midwestmarineguy.com/wp-content/uploads/BioFish/YellowEyedKoleTang.jpg
It describes it as brown also but it's blue?
I'd like a tang but I don't want brown, I really like blue.

Thanks.

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Kole Yellow Eye Tang

That`s just a bad picture. The real color is a maroon color. The link will show you and here is mine. He`s in the middle.

Thanks, I was looking at that link, lol, I must be color blind, it looks more brown to me, but still your's doesn't look the same as the link either, it's more blue/purple to me, maybe my eyes are just buggy. I think that and the yellow tang would be the only tangs I could have in my 75g, correct? And I mean either or, not both.

melosu58 in your "view your tank" link, what is that red and white fish under the yellow tang? Image number 016.jpg I believe it was.

Yes that is correct. Never put tangs of the same shape in a aquarium together unless it is big enough for everyone to be happy that's my opinion though

Can you post a pic? Yeah I know a yellow tang in a 75 would be pushing it, that's why I really don't want one though it says it can be in a 75. How do you know what "color" kole you get. As it sounds like there are kinda different colors. Does it depend on species? or something?
