Help! Did the pet store not give me the right fish?

I just brought what was supposed to be 5 White cloud mountain minnows...but now that I brought them home and looked at them...it appears there's only 1 mountain minnow and 4 of another kind...maybe a zebra danio? Or am I being dumb and it's actually 4 females and 1 male?

Very new to the hobby, so appreciate the help!

If it is 4 of one kind and 1 mountain minnow, will they get along and be fine or do I need to return them because the 1 by itself needs to school with it's own kind?

They look like zebra danios to me. Their temperature ranges overlap a little. Maybe somewhere around 20c will be ok for them both.

What size tank do you have? I would recommend minimum 6 of each of those kinds, so maybe 15 to 20 gallon if you wanted a small school of each would be required.
