    Honestly from what I can see (Which isn't much) this doesn't really look like a rainbow to me. Don't take my word for it though.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

    Agreed. It strikes me as.. African. Maybe even a peacock. Again though, this is based on the picture which is kind of blurry. no offense.

    Yes these are very similar to my peacock fry. I believe you've got some sort of African Cichlid there my friend. Me and many of the other people here could probably give you a positive ID as they mature:)

    EDIT: I hadn't realized they were this small, I was thinking the fish pictured was a half inch. Now that I know how small they are, the first pics are actually pretty darn impressive! LOL.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

    It is almost certainly a cichlid. 99% percent sure. There are some other alternatives but most of them are to rare to be likely.

    The most likely species by far is albino/white convict cichlids.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    I agree with William! I hadn't even considered convicts. Good call man.

    Oh well, that sucks, Again i have community tanks, so no room for aggressive guys. and to be honest although i have seen some beautiful cichlids, they just arn't my type. I guess i will give them away :-) anyone gets a general consensus of what type they could be, let me know...the guy said they get colors, when they get older, but he also said they were rainbow so i take that with a grain of salt now. lesson learned...
