how do I know if I have a Red-tail Tinfoil Barb or just a plain old Barb? Doesn't the red-tail not grow as massive as the barbs grow? 8" compared to 12" or 14"

My largest tinfoil barb is about 11" long right now. It has the red tail. So, I guess the they do grow larger than 8"-9". There are 8 in a 150g tank along with a 14" panaque. A filtering nightmare. All are waste machines. Filtration is well beyond heavy. The tank is being filtered about 22x per hour. Total filtration is around 3300gph.
