Ive never heard of a tang that stays that small either. Id say about 6" is as small as I have seen for adult length.

Read the next to last one where it talks about a blue eyed kole tang. Is this the fish you are talking about.

The Yellow Eyed Kole Tang does have a thin ring of blue around the eye itself along with the thicker yellow border. And I believe as juvies its only blue. Could be wrong though.
