From what I can see of the so-called "Rainbow Badis" photos/videos online, the fish is the Dario dario. Its more "common" common name is Scarlet Badis, and it is in our profiles under this name. This is another example of why common names are so confusing; various people assign common names at random, there is no official "naming", only the true scientific species name.
I have a group of 9 of these in my SE Asian pond tank. They are extremely beautiful fish, at least the males are; females are very dull and drab, as you probably know unless you have all males. You'll find lots of info on the fish in our profile. The profiles are under the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top, or when the same name is used in posts it will be shaded, as you will see in the paragraph above, and you can click on that for that fish's profile.
