my first thought was a rasbora of some kind (R.daniconius or R.einthovenii)
but neither the tailfin or the anal fin fit any kind of cyprinid.

I think it is a livebearer of some kind and that is not my area of interest.
hope someone with experience in livebearers can help you ID it

Mouth isn't pointed up enough. They get these guys with ghost shrimp at the LFS I go to as well. He hasn't any idea what it is either. Sells them for 99 as "Darters". Could be a tetra of some sort; they don't all have adipose fins.

Why is the fish oddly familiar to me? I think I'll dig the books and websites but it appears to be a cyprinid to me. Hmmm...

It looks a little like a least killifish (Heterandria formosa) but the head shape's off and the markings seem to be cleaner.

Looks a lot more like a juvenile Bluefin Killifish - Lucania goodei. That's close enough for me.
