can you tell me what type of rasbora this is

This is a discussion on can you tell me what type of rasbora this is within the Cyprinids and Atherinids forums, part of the Freshwater and Tropical Fish category; --> Looks like something of a washed-out Buenos Aires tetra to me, too. Like miniature piranhas. Very nippy....

You didn't mention the size but judging by the plant leaves they're fairly small so I'm guessing that they're Silvertip Tetras (Hasemania nana). The males, particularly when well cared for, will exhibit the orange and yellow coloration evident in your photograph. These are generally quite peaceful and hardy fish and max out at around 2 inches long. They are also one of the few tetras that don't have an adipose fin (a little tiny fin along the back, behind the dorsal and before the tail) which may have led to your thoughts that they were rasboras.

If it's not got an adipose, at the size we're discussing, then silvertip makes sense. If it did, then my next guess would have been Garnet Tetra - Hemmigrammus pulcher (lousy picture, though):
