Time to play guess that fish

a month ago I bought a couple of cherry shrimp from my LFS and when I was at the checkout counter I
noticed there was something swimming with the shrimp that was a fish about 3/8" long and could hardly
even see the thing in the bag. I decided to keep the fish and this is what it looks like now.
It has been all silver/gray for a month and is now showing some color. It is now just
over 3/4" long. any ideas what it could be?

If I had to guess, I'd say some sort of livebearer.

Possibly a feeder guppy/endler's livebearer hybrid.
