I have 2 and they're two different shades. One has the tinfoil look and is much older (I'm not sure on exact age, just adopted) at 8" and the younger one about 4" (had since a baby, about 2 years). The younger one has a dark coloration while the older one acually looks like a Tinfoil Barb if that makes sense. I was curious if they have this while they're young for protection? I'm not sure, there's always someone more experienced than yourself.

There's some individual variation in the species. The ones I raised seemed to stay about the same color, so I would expect the smaller one of yours to remain a bit darker than your larger one.
