Blue Tetra Fish Identification

tgruetzm

Hello,

I bought some new blue tetras(Boehlkea fredcochui) on Live Aquaria and received what I'm not 100% sure is a blue tetra. The coloration looks similar but these guys seem to have two dorsal fins and one is much larger than any blue tetra I've seen.

Any idea on what these are?

Thanks

It's a rainbowfish. But the colours are so pale I can't give a species ID. Very sure genus Melanotaenia.

Melanotaenia praecox ?

Just looked at them in the LFS

Do praecox have a lateral line towards the caudal?
