Looked like a congo tetra for me at the first second, cuz of the colorful line that runs through the body, then the gold they get even as a baby!
But somehow, I dun think it's a congo!

It's a sort of tetra, hope someone can help you!

It looks almost like a lemon tetra to me, but the eye doesn't have the red highlights, which makes me think it's not actually a lemon tetra, but something closely related.

It was sold to me saying "female congo"; however, she doesn't look like any of my female congos. I thought she would change the color when grow a little bit but it stay the same. I guess the store list that wrong.

How big is she? I would guess Silver Tetra: Gymnocorymbus bondi

or maybe Yellow tetra: Hyphessobrycon bifasciatus

Not sure about the colour... but she looks quite a bit like the silver tipped tetras that are in Rastapus's sale flyer! (not that I could tell a congo tetra from a long-finned danio with a cold)
