def looks like a white cloud. usually the minnows sold as feeders are very stressed and seldom do they have the proper colouring (typically all washed-out and colourless)

ive never herd of Dither fish as a type of fish , its usually referring to a fish used to make timid fish feel more comfortable

it looks like a Rainbow fish or perhaps some killI that got into the water at the pond where they raise the local feeders by you (ive gotten some nice america native fish that have been shiped out with feeder ghost shrimp )

what Scotty said. dither fish usually refer to a faster more energetic fish that makes bigger more timid fish come out of hiding (ex. "if it is safe for them it must be safe for me") or gets the attention of more aggressive fish so that they will not attach other tank mates. what you have could be a common dither fish, but that is not actually the name of that particular fish.

I'm sorry to disagree, but it is not a white cloud. Note two fins on the dorsal. White Clouds only have one.

The first picture looks like a gudgeon of some sort - at least going by the fins. But I don't believe those are very common, so probably something else.

Wow thanks for the comments guys.

To me for all the research I've done I can't seem to go past the gudgeon fish.

Pic below is very similar they could have crossed some where along the line but still it looks like a strong gudgeon to me I would have to agree with escapay.
