My sharks...Id please

Hi everyone,

I have had these little cuties for awhile now, but have yet to id them properly. The largest has reached almost 7", and the smaller ones are near 4".

They school together 24/7, and they never sit still. lol

Tank temp is 75 degrees, and tank ph is 7.0. They are housed with some of my larger mature angelfish, and guppies. They are extremely peaceful, and do not even bother the guppy fry.

I had to use flash for the picture which ended up washing out their color.

They have silver bodies with either clear or red fins. The largest ones display a spot near the tail fin, and the smaller ones show a vertical stripe.

Possibly cyclocheilichthys janthrochir? You could make better comparison since pic may not have displayed their full potential.
