      Looks like a common shiner. Maybe a hitchhiker from the feeder fish section?

      Nope all of them were this one species. Are you absolutely sure about this ID? I live in tropical Singapore and here we rarely import any shiners, the only shiners I've ever seen for sale are red shiners.

      Hmm doesnt seem to be. The closest I could find was the slender rasbora. Just that the black stripe doesn't go through the eye like in the slender rasbora.

      Nope I’m not sure of the ID. But the double stripe along the body and the body and fin shape is very similar to many shiners I’ve seen in the Notropsis species. Unfortunately, there are a ton of different types and their colors are highly variable, especially in breeding colors, so I have no idea what type it may be or if it is a shiner at all. Below are all different types of shiners and they share the general shape and pattern of your fish
