Me 3... It's not a Gertrude. I've had LOTS of blue eyed rainbows, that's not a rainbow at all.

Definitely not any rainbow, especially a Gertrude. I've had LOTs of blue eyed rainbows over the years. I'm on board with the Chela...

This is what it is, thanks! The reason I was thinking rainbow was the placement of the front fins, but these guys have them there too. Good to know he won't grow too big and finally figure out what it is. Do wish they'd have sent the right one as an extra though, since I found one of the CPD's floating when I got home from work today :/
Thanks for all the help guys! Glad to finally know what I have!

I think it is a brilliant rasbora, Rasbora einthovenii. Far more common than Chela dadiburjori and seemingly much more likely to me.


Which retailer was it that sent it?

The chela's I've seen tend to look much more like these guys:

It is for sure the Chela dadyburjori. I'm having a hard time getting a good picture of it since I'm stuck trying to do so with a cellphone camera. Another reason that I'm convinced that it is them is that after checking the retailers site (http://aquariumfish.net/catalog_page..._sale.htm#top2) they list "Orange Hatchet Danio" right underneath the Emerald Dwarf Rasbora. Thing was, when I clicked on the "Click for pictures" they don't actually show a picture of the fish I got until you get to the 5th row.
