Gold Barb Color Variations?

AndrewP

Sadly my school of gold barbs has been slowly dwindling, I'm down to two. I was going to start adding some new ones but the gold barbs at my LFS are more of a silver color and all of mine have always been gold. Are there color variations of gold barbs? These fish have the same markings and look just like the barbs I've always had, the only difference being the color.

Gold barbs are the tankbred colorvariaty of B.semifasciolates (schuberti). The natural types are silverish

That was very informative, thank you. My LFS must be getting the barbs from a different supplier now.
