On the one hand, using the Gradient Editor you can assign individual nodes to 
reference the "foreground" or "background" color instead of using a fixed color 
(right click a node handle and select the "Color Type"), however something like 
the Tube Red is actually a bit more complicated than a FG/BG fade (it uses more 
than two colors) so no, you can't "just" change its color to something else - 
you'd have to apply a consistent change the hue across like five nodes.  It's 
certainly doable, it just isn't as simple as it looks. :(

Thanks, yes, I've found that one, and it works to fill an entire selection.  
But I like
the 3-d effects of, for example, the Tube Red.   The sharp crisp color and the 
of depth,  but not the red.   I guess there's no way to turn it green and blue 

loosing the sense of depth that it gives.
I can go to color balance, or to various ways to color it after I've used it, 
but all those
ways cancel out the depth effect.  So I guess I'd have to be able to choose the 

before using the gradient.

In the Blend Tool options, you can set the gradient to FG to BG
