The spot looks much more alike now. Is that nearly it? I've about a dozen or so species left to look at (fishbase is going REALLY slow) but that's a pretty good match.

EDIT: It's also a lot like the H. vorderwinkleri

Closer but the spot just isn't quite it. It's probably a Hemigrammus species of some kind.

I would think that it is the gold tetra that FLbettacouple said, here is a less colorful picture of one:

I think that it could be a gold tetra. I read that their gold coloration is due to a skin parasite, so if they are bred in captivity they never get the gold coloration.
