fish ID need help asap? xD

ok so i got this fish at petsmart a few weeks ago and was sold as a "glow light tetra" which is totally wrong cause i did some search and it doesnt look anything light the glow light tetra and i bought some GLT from another petsmart and they are different from one another... anyways so here are some pictures of the fish... any idea what it could be?

all these photo are the same fish on different angles... looks like a killifish but i'm no fish expert... also if it is what kind of fish is it? any local names in case i want more.... they seem to be a schooling fish as i have 2 and they tend to stick together all the time...

From those pics I can say it's definitely a fish of some sort.

It's definitely not a glowlight tetra, but to me it looks like a glowlight danio, especially looking at the vertical stripes near the midsection to the tail in the third picture.
