This could be Ember tetra or another tetra that sometimes is imported as Ember because it looks VERY much like the Ember.
The only difference is that when calm and happy the Ember is deeper orange - literally glowing deep orange. The other species is more pale, but it has faint opalescent colors - green, blue, and even white.
The difference is truly negligible and overall the real Ember looks just deeper orange. The way your picture is now it looks like the second species, but you need to wait to see how deep orange the fish eventually get. When stressed even a little bit both species look exactly the same.
Both species are some of the hardiest tetras ever and school very tightly. Once you get them you always love them.
