Need help identifying this fish breed


Usually I should post a pic but I just bought them and they're quite small, so I'll describe it.

It is kinda like a tetra, just smaller. Pinkish/white sorta like the color of human skin (white person), and the body is transparent so you see its organs. It gets to be about 2-3 inches big.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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