a mystery tetra

They gave me a couple of these together with black neons today. Looks like beacon fish, doesn't it?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I agree, it looks like that Hemigrammus ocellifer and beacon fish is its other name. I do not see them in our shops around here. We got it by chance, together with black neons. Those two stick together, however, and do not consider neons their family.
