They also look to thick. But probably at least one would have the marks. Why do you need that filter?

Things like that often fill in as the fish grow and mature. I obviously don't know enough about the fish to say whether it's true of them or not, but it's common in many other fish so it feasible that it's the case with them too. I have seen them at the fish store though, and 8 was definitely part of the name listed there. Coincidence that that fishs scientific name is octozona? Not in my opinion.

90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir

Well they look the same size. So if they were the same fish they would probably look the same. Also what other barbs change as they age?

Without perspective there is no way to ascertain size.

Gold barbs do, as well as tiger barbs. Black ruby barbs. It's REALLY common for fish to grow into a different appearance, especially for patterned fish. Your yoyo loaches won't look like they do now. Not a barb, but a cousin. Goldfish aren't born orange - they are black. They turn gold. While not exactly a barb, they too are cousins.

Yes, their pattern certainly can change when they are grown. They get black blotches in the gold, as well as a green sheen.

Yes, goldfish do that. There is a lot to know about these fish, more than you can read about on a profile page.
