No Gump they are the same. Black is the juvenile male before it becomes a blue adult. Read up.... http://www.fishbase.org/Summary/Spec...ry.php?id=8594
I'm one of the very few that keep several of them alive eating frozen silver sides. Most die within weeks of being in captivity. TFH magazine has heralded them several times as the "Holy Grail" of salt water fish because of both their beauty and near inability to keep alive in captivity. Mine have been kicking around for about a year now. Secret is to get one to eat live ghost shrimp coated in garlic. Then when you are absolutely positive you have one eating then get several more so they can mimic what is happening around them. Then slowly try adapting them to garlic coated silver sides. Slowly, about 8 months later, they will begin feeding from the frozen silver sides and you no longer have any issues. If you were as proud of them as I am, these are my babies, you'd know everything you could.
