The two photos attached to my earlier post are from Seriously Fish (I think) and are stated to be brilliant rasbora; a Google search brought up dozens of similar photos, so I have no doubt about those photos. I'm not going to say the fish in zombiefish610's original post are the same--I think they are. But the fish in my post is the brilliant rasbora.
Having seen your latest post, i checked Wikipedia (which by the way is put together by folks like us, some amateurs mostly, and info may or may not be correct, but no matter) but there are no photos of the brilliant rasbora there, just the common harlequin. On the sidebar though it does have the photo below, a blackline rasbora, which sounds like the fish you describe. Rasbora borapetensis is the species.
