Mystery Fish

Hello, I have a few fishies in my tank that need IDing. They came with the tank and the fellow that sold it didn't know what they were.
I appologize in advance for the size of the pics, I don't own any program that down sizes photos atm.

I was thinking the orange ones might be a Characin of some sort, I could be totally wrong though.
They are about 2.5 inches long and orange and yellow with black speckles on their backs. Big eyes with a red dot on them. The big shiney silver guy is also a mystery fish to me but I don't think he belongs in this family.
Thanks in advance!

The silver one looks similar to a Filament Barb

The orange speckled ones are Gold Barbs and the other fellow is a Scissortail Rasbora.
