I would expect this to be a colour morph of the orignal South American species, Gymnocorymbus ternetzi, the Black Skirt Tetra. "Blueberry tetra", "Strawberry Tetra" are some others. Care is the same as for the original species. These colour morphs do not occur in the wild, they are aquarium strains developed by aquarists.

They get to be big monsters.
Not overly big, but bigger than what i expected the little bugger to be.
Also their skirt does fade after a bit of time and growth.
