New fish..don't know what it is. any help?
 
Found these guys in a Meijer pet dept. in an unmarked tank. They charged me about 1.99 each. I bought 8. Wondering what kind of Tetra they are?

I found an uncanny similar looking fish with the same patterns of yellow and black on both fins that was labled as a "lemon tetra"

it is a Pristella maxillaris - X-ray tetra

Yep. Lemon tetra if you ask me.

Nope. X-ray tetra. Lemon tetras have red coloration on top of their eyes. The-Wolf was right.;)
