Gold Dojo Loaches

This may be a dumb question, but I'm wondering how you can tell if a Dojo Loach (Weather Loach) is gold or not. I mean are they actually albino which means they'd have red eyes? The reason I ask is because I picked up a couple today for my 46 gallon tank and one of them is a gold color. I was under the impression that Gold Dojos are more rare. Is this true? I'll try to post some pics tomorrow.

they have them at my local petsmart. $8.99 each.

And no, they dont have red eyes, they are just a gold color. Also, they don't get as large as spotted dojo's. They usually only get up to 8"
