Need assistance identifying fish

Hey all, I was wondering if someone could help me identify this fish. It was sold under the name "Barred Rasbora" but I can't find any details on this fish. I even went through the extensive lists from this site: http://www.thegoldfishbowl.co.uk/atlas.html but could not find anything on the fish.

Here is a picture:



The fish is flanked by green fire tetras, so you should be able to judge the size.

There is some contention as to the genus of this fish
it was originally called microrasbora erythromicron
and is now known by many scientist as Danio erythromicron

either way is is defiantly in the Danionin subfamily of Cyprinids
some common name as dwarf emerald rasbora, green barred rasbora, or
pygmy green rasbora, but I suspect all of those names are made up by LFs's

That's what I thought initially as well.

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.
