Oh Hurray!!! LOL. At least all of my antics of staring at that tank for so long in the store wasn't in vain. They actually had them labeled correctly AND they were only $1.99 each...this is great!

What identified the lil bugger for you?

Thanks again for the help everyone.

I have been looking at pics of the Apareiodon affinis and its band is thinner and less vibrant than the SAE. The bands on the fish I have is thicker like the SAE...I agree they look similar but on a side by side comparison such as on the below website...you can see how faded the Apareiodon affinis look.
