What kind of tetra is this?

I just bought 4 of them yesterday and forgot what type of tetra they are. Silly me.


Got them at Petco. They're bodies are translucent around the top and bottom (basically besides the organs and the stripe going to its tail)
Thanks!

Could they be X-Ray Tetras?

Kinda hard to tell color-wise, but they look like my pristella (xray) tetras. Mine have mostly clear bodies, with some black/yellow/red in the fins.

I'm 99% sure those are gold pristella tetras.
These are mine. From petco as well.
