Tetra Identification Please

I have had this fish for 6 or 7 years. I know it is a tetra of some sort. I have not been able to find a similar fish in any LFS to identify it.

My "guess" would be a Black Neon Tetra..who is old. He thinks he's a Zebra Danio, as he likes to school with them

Could anyone help me out?



90 Gallon Fresh Water Planted w/ CO2:
7 Brilliant Rasbora, 6 Harlequin Rasboras, 3 Dwarf Neon Rainbows, 1 Red Tailed Shark, 2 American Flag Fish, 4 Skunk Botia Loaches

40 Gallon Breeder Salt Water: 4 inch DSB (2/3 Agaramax & 1/3 Sea Flor), Bak Pak 2R Skimmer w/ BBX, 2 x JBJ PHs, Coralife Lunar Aqualight (2x96w), 30lb Base Rock and 40lbs of Live Rock.
Inhabitants: Purple Firefish, Pygmy Angel, Lawmower Blenny, 2 Cleaner Shrimp, 1 Peppermint Shrimp, Pistol Shrimp(HH), 1 Emerald Crabs, 3 Porcelin Crabs(HH), varying amounts and varieties of hermit and snails.

I don't know what kind of tetra that is, but I don't believe it's a black neon. Black neons are bigger and also have a green stripe.

Looking over your picture I notice that there is no adipose fin on this fish. I suspect that what you've got there is a Red-tailed (Brilliant) Rasbora, Rasbora borapetensis.

Here's a picture (not mine) of the Red-tailed Rasbora:
