What size are they? Young severums that are a lower grade won't start to show a golden color until they're older - and even then the older strains of gold severum look a lot more white than gold. The only ones with a truely deep golden hue are the higher grade red spotted gold's that cost a lot more in general.

Line bred trait is from Asian stuff for the red spotted golds. True goldens are a different breed and don't get a deep yellow.

At 2.5" they're going to be white, you should see them color up at around 4-5"...do a Google search under Images for gold severum and you can get an idea of what they'll look like.
