The white form of Gymnocorymbus ternetzi, click on the shaded name to see info in the profile. This one almost looks like one of the blueberry ones that are injected with dye. Terrible practice.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Yep, definitely a white skirt tetra. I have 3 black ones, and they are super cute! They are schooling fish, so you might want to get more of them, now that you know what it is :)
