    Never seen the top one here, but have seen the other two quite regularly for sale at the LFS :p

    If you want to see a Kole tang go to Pampered, they have one there at the moment its a beauty.

    Hi i got a blond naso tang i got it as a juvenile now that he getting older his colours are changing, he eats a hell of alot, peaceful but once it has it territory puting another tang is almos imposible managed to get away by introducing a regal tang but my goldrim tang wasnt that lucky. They are also very personable fish he will try to show off wen he see me in the room, he accepts food from my hand and allows me to touch him as he swim pass.

    Just remember that powder blue tangs are prone to get white spot, they can infect your whole tank and gets quite aggressive and territorial once established.

    Hi Slummies, I had a simmilar fish to the Yellow Eyes Kole, It was the Silver Spotted Kole Tang. A brilliant little tang, quite peaceful and decemated the Green Hair algae in my tank. But again once it has established its pad, it gets a little arguementative. If you tank is large enough I'd try add the Tang's you want in close succession. My first choice is the Naso. UBER AWESOME!

    Hey Bruce, I wouldn't go with a PB tang. I reckon a yellow tang or naso would be best bro. And if you decide to get a tang, make it one of the last fish that you put in your tank, otherwise he might cause a bit of damage to your later arrivals. Peace:)
