Hmm, it's beautiful but I have no idea what it could be. I think it is a member of the rasbora family though.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

I don't think so. The black side bar doesn't go through and colour the eye in that variety, it does on yours and the daniconius.

from the pics you have two fish. Once is certainly a rasbora. The other one at the surface looks to be a type of killifish or possibly a livebearer but I would lean more towards killifish with how rounded the tail is

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

The last three pictures are definitely a species of snakehead, which you probably wanna put back before your fish start disappearing lol.
