B. striata or B. rostrata? B. histrionica?

Does anyone have pictures of baby striatas? The 4 I bought today don't look much like the pictures on the species page. They look more like B. rostrata. I read from somewhere on the archieve that their pattern changes as they grow up, but I just want to make sure I didn't get loaches that will grow too big. (>4" = too big) They swim away every time I approach the tank with my camera so it's very difficult to take a good picture.
They aren't that shy.. always out and about checking out everything together. It looks like they are counting how many plants I have in the tank as if planning or deciding which ones they are going destroy first.
