The Ambanja comes in two main variations. One is the Blue-Barred Ambanja and the other is a Red-Barred Ambanja.There is also a more rare variation called the Purple-Barred Ambanja that displays purple banding.
The main difference between the variations is the color of the vertical banding. Blue-Barred Ambanjas will display bright electric-blue bars. Red-Barred Ambanjas will display wine-red bars. When the blue and red bars mix you get a Purple-Barred Ambanja. All Ambanjas display common background colors which consists of a teal to light turquoise blue.
