    I went to my LFS to get odessa barbs, and I thought I knew what they looked like, but then there were these gold ones, and I thought at first that they were male and female, but now I'm not sure...here's a picture of some of them...
    Edit: In the store and in the bag, when they were so stressed, they didn't look as different because none of them had much color.

    Yes, two different species. The gold ones are barbodes semifasiolatus.

    Thanks, I went back and they exchanged the golds for more Odessa.
