golden danio?
 
So i was watching my danios today and i noticed that of the pack of 5, one sticks out. While 4 of them are silver with the horizontal stripes, one is gold. i would try to get pics but theyre so fast. just wondering if this typically happens, or if maybe the zebra has a bit of long fin danio in him (only other danios ive seen with more of a golden look to them) or what.

thanks :)

I take it by danio you mean a Zebra danio, if so sexualy mature males will have a golden sheen to them
