    Im after some help to id this rainbow fish.

    I bought it from my lfs in a mixed rainbow tank but im unsure of the species.

    I have tried googling it but still unsure.
    Its a juvenile and about 2inches.

    Sometimes the stripe down the middle gets quite dark.

    To me it looks like a young sardine. Based on color and tail shape

    I think it is a bosemani as well. Maybe it just doesn't have as much coloration as your other bosemani.

    Irian red? The one that is harder to get a hold of right now. Not the solid red one. It is not boesemani enough in color, head shape looks a little more pointed as well.
