Idendification Needed

Hi everyone,

I bought a few new fish today and I was so excited I rushed out of the store without asking the name of two of the fish, I know one is a dawf Gourami but the other two which are the same breed just different colours I can't find anything about at all, so I'll post a few pics to see if anyone can tell me..

youll want to add at least one more they should be kept in groups of 3-5 minimum because they are schooling and will fin nip if not kept in groups. i love the one with the blue stripe :]

I've got 4 other tetras in there and I'm rather upset now as I've just been looking online and I think they may be dyed skirt tetras, it sounds horrible cruel and they did have pink and other colours there.. This sounds awful and I'm rather upset thinking my new fish may be dyed😔 not that I care now, but apparently the colour fades away IF they survive that long..

They are dyed white skirt tetras, i think of the process as quite inhumane.
They will eventually lose the color, i believe.

Yes I've been researching it and I'm most upset, the orange one I think is more natural not the blue one but I wish I knew, I thought I hadn't seen any like this before..
