Question

Fish ID


Found this little guy at a Pet Paradise, poorly maintained and it seems they get some oddball fish in their shipments. I've seen them here before but this is the first time I got a video. Couldn't take a picture he was moving to fast, so a video should do.
Also watch in 720p for best detail.

I was thinking of something like a micro rasbora, danio something of that sort. but, idk...

Maybe some kinda barb like a cherry? Really high pec fins remind me of rainbowfish...

From what I can see it is an Orange Chela Danio.

It looks like a glow light danio (Danio choprai) to me, albeit darker than ones I've seen.
Might be from stress...


Even if its not a glow light, it looks like a danio, the body shape and attitude fit

Yeah, defiantly some sort of danio. Neat fish though, there were 2 at the store so should I buy them or pass.
