What is this fish?

Pictures by rlgilly - Photobucket

Today i bought a mess of feeder guppies and this fellow was in the bag with them. The lady at the fish store aparently caught him by mistake. The fish store is 150 miles away and closed for the weekend. Id sure like to know what s/he is so i can take care of him/her correctly.

thanks for your help.

ps s/he is about 1 inch long atm.

looks like some kind of tetra. In all honesty, if it was in with the feeder fish I would probably treat it as such if your "predator" fish can eat something that size.

yes, i have it in my smaller isolation tank. It doesn't really look like a tetra to me. First thought was a Jack Dempsey, but hes not as colorful as the pics I've found online of Jack Dempsey's.

yeah that's what is puzzling to me, is the lack of color. Maybe it's a platy.. again lack of color is confusing. NM.. looking closer dont think it's a platy either.

Hes a silver with a few black spots. I know its not a platy, or molly. I'm thinking some type of cichlid. Its got more of a cichlid body type. Maybe as it grows bigger I will be able to figure it out.

Archocentrus sajica (T-Bar Cichlid)

could also be a convict, gotta be somewhere in this line.
