What is this boraras?

I have a group of nine B. maculatus, or so I thought. Just noticed today that one is not like the others. I'm just curious what it is...it's healthy and stays with the group. They're zoomy little fish so this is the best pic I could get, and it's with flash. Any thoughts about mystery fish on the right?

It is called boraras urophthalmoides. Or the sparrow rasbora.

Thank you so much! After looking at bunches of photos that's what I was leaning towards but it's nice to hear from someone else.
