I agree with Fishin Pole.
They look a little narrow for Tinfoils, but they also look young. How large are they?

They are lacking red in the fins. Maybe a golden tinfoil barb?

Lemon barbs I think. They're too slender to be tinfoil barbs.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
