What is this fish?

They are white/ translucent, about the size and shape of a small human fingernail, a bit narrower, and have a bit of orange on their heads. They are absurdly hardy, and have been living in a science room beaker/ flower vace (yes, alternating between the two) for a week now with no casualties. Please help me out. Thanks.

Cameras are "strictly forbidden" at our school. Sorry :( I'll see if trilobytes look right... Thanks for trying...

I checked another forum and a fish that looked kind of like it was called a "Platy". The other fish was all orange w/ black fins though. Do they come in white? And live in insane conditions?

They look like this, only I think they are younger or unhealthy (who could blame them)

I can't think of a specie that even remotely resembles your description.

Brine Shrimp maybe?
