Forgot to note what the fish store sold these guys as. Any help with ID would be appreciated.

How big is it? If it is over an inch or ever gets over an inch, it is not a scarlet badis or any other Dario species, but a member of genus Badis proper. Female Dario's do not get much longer than half an inch, and usually look more orangish than this from what I understand.

Notice the line across the eye. Kajol in Bengali or Hindi means eyeliner. Also females are much more pale and slight pink in colors strips are not a vibrant as seen here.

Kajol is what resembles the name I saw. Pics match perfectly too. Thank you, Ivan.

Grah, they are slightly larger than Dario dario. Pictures is the largest of the 3 I purchased, about 1". The smallest is almost half the size.
