Looks like a pristella tetra. They can be kept in pure freshwater to brackish. Not sure how well they do in brackish but they are found there in the wild.

I'm not sure. Hard to tell from the pic but pristella tetra's are x-ray fish, sorta transparent and you can see their skeletons inside. That's not how this fish looks to me but it could be because I have a crappy monitor.

This doesn't look like a pristella to me either. Pristellas don't have the black markings on their bodies like your fish does. http://www.animal-world.com/encyclo/.../pristella.php

I believe this is Exodon Paradox or the buck tooth tetra. Extremely vicious fish.

The buck tooth tetra pictutre looks like my fish with the eception of the coloring . He is a vicious fish as he bites my chicleds that could swallow him whole . He swims front and center of the tank and never stops moving , the other fish cant catch him . I call him neopolenion as he has the small complex. I tried to post another pic but it says 1mb uploaded already? He has some slight yellow,two black circles on a silver body and the fin tips are red. Txs for all feedback and hyperlink
