Fish ID help

Hey all. I bought what I thought were 6giant Danios here about a month ago. Now I have noticed that one just doesn't look like the others. I was thinking it kinds looks like a type of rainbow fish maybe. Anyone able to confirm from my shoddy photo?

It looks like Melanotaenia splendida, and most likely a hybrid of fish from different localities (and representing different subspecies).

I agree with everyone else. Looks very much like one of my Australians.
