It's the very rare, Buenos Aires Tetra Rasbora.
/ Seriously. Not a rasbora. A Buenos Aires Tetra.

The black bar on the caudal peduncle and the reddish tail fins are diagnostic.
In the right tank, that's a great fish. In the wrong tank, which includes almost every community aquarium you're likely to want, that fish is a terror. What do you have him in with?

Sure it's not a Rosy Barb (Barbus conchonius)?

Positive. That black line at the back rules it out, and the shape is spot on for a BA Tetra.

i compared with a BA Tetra they are simular but they have white tips on all their fins. their whole body is orange and around the place line is yellow not a red/orange. the pic isn't that great so you don't see this. they were in my 50 gal that has black skirts and lemon tetras, 2 blue white tipped rainbows a bichir eel and a BGK. but i moved them to my betta tank which has 3 female bettas and 3 cories, and some ghost shrimp

Very well, I still think you have a tetra rather than a rasbora. I suppose you might have one of the varieties of gold tetras (Hemigrammus rodwayi):

Or Head and Tail Light Tetra (Hemigrammus ocellifer)

I don't think it's any of the fish that mimic Corydoras hastatus. If it were, it were most likely the Paraguary White-Tip (Aphyocharax paraguayensis - no adipose fin) or Dawn Tetra (Hyphessobrycon eos)
