Different color Volitan Lion Fish?

I recently got a Lion fish, and was curious if they change colours as they age, or just different fish are different shades.

For example - in the two links below, you'll notice one that is more of a brown colour, and then another that is more white and black type of colour.

Volitan Lionfish - Venomous (Pterois volitans)

Volitan Lionfish - Large - Venomous (Pterois volitans)

Mine is more of a brown sahde - but I'd like to eventually get one that is more of the black and white look.

There are a few different lion fish. I fyou bought it at an LFS they could very well have marked it wrong. A lot of the time they call anything small a fuzzy dwarf and anything bigger A Volitan. Just make sure you research before you purchase.
I blame Craig AND his stupid List.
