Identify this fish


I'm trying to identify this fish: http://www.aquainspiration.com/nproducts/LIS/RBNW-m.JPG. The local name apparently is Rainbow Blue Neon. Unfortunately the common name is too general to figure out which fish this actually is. I'm just wondering if anyone knows anything about this fish and can provide me with more info about it (especially the scientific name).

Thanks,
Harry

Pseudomugil iriani, it's actually red neon in this case

Hi Harry,

It looks like Pseudomugil gertrudae to me.

Gertrudae is way more blue than the fish shown in the picture, i also disagree with the body structure, you see how on gertrudae the fins are very large and pointed? in the picture given the fins are short and more rounded, also far more red then on a Gertrudae, this is what is making me sure it's Iriani

all the varieties make this so confusing, it appears that this and the Iriani are basically the same fish
