White and Gold cloud mountain minnows

Are gold cloud minnows less hardy that the white? I set up my 90 l tank with 12 - 6 of each - some weeks ago and they were doing very well until I discovered one of them fins up at the bottom of the tank. A few weeks later I sat to watch them and noticed that a second had somehow got himself trapped in the filter and was also dead. Today I can only find 3 of the remaining 4 gold minnows although the whites appear to be thriving.

Just by appearances the golds do seem to be more delicate.

They are the same species just different coloration, so no one is not more hardy than the other.

I thought that was probably the case. It just struck me as odd that the wc minnows are doing well while the golds are disappearing. I keep hoping no 4 is just hiding but I suspect not. He didn't appear when I fed them.
