Can Botia Lecontei be tan????

Hi. I have recently purchased 4 large, mostly 3 inch Botia Lecontei, under the name "Golden Fin Botia." There is one specimen that I thought was neat, that has a tan color, and looks nothing like the bigger Botia Lecontei I bought. This guy is about 1.5 inches long, and has a green sheen to the caudal bloth. It looks more like my 2 other larger Botia Caudipunctata I have in one of my other tanks. So, can juvenile B. Lecontei be a tan color? The bigger ones are a blueish silver color.

Thanks for any help.
