What kind of fish is this fry?

This is a really really crappy photo but the little bugger won't stand still Can anyone tell me what he is. I assume its some kind of a tetra. Hes got red spots on the bases of his fins and then on his tail fins there are two black spots, one on top and another on bottom. Thanks!

What's in the tank? That will help us determine what kind of fish he is but to me he looks like a livebearer (platy, guppy, molly, ect.)

Swordtails are predominantly orange... some of them... do you have any of those? ST also a live bearer.

Well the thing is that i saved them from a petsmart when they were draining their tank system. So i have no clue what it could be. I agree that it looks like a live bearer but the coloring is throwing me off.

Well it will be fun to see what it grows into. Keep us posted.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
