So i am a newby when it comes to fish keeping, and I purchased this fish from a petstore who sold it to me as a Tetra. I cannot find any photos of tetras that look like my fish.

Characteristics:
- about 6-7 cm in length
- friendly
- very shiny scales
- fairly active
thank you, please look at photos posted

Any chance the store will take him back?

Good thing you checked out what he is.

took him back but to a different pet store that specializes in fish, so he will find a proper home and not go home with someone like me who doesn't know what they're getting!!
