I don't think either of those fish are M. praecox.

So here's what I've been calling praecox in my tank:
Image
(First time linking photobucket px -- let's see if it works...).
To my knowledge (unfortunately limited to local lfs labeling!), the red-finned larger one is male, and the smaller yellow-finned one is female.
Keep in mind a flash was used, so the steel blue opaque color of the sides is greatly enhanced relative to more 'natural' lighting, which makes their bodies look somewhat more translucent, and white to silver. I normally only see the blue when they flash sideways just right under the overhead fluorescent tube light.

What do the more knowledgeable rainbow folk among us think for ID?

Those are def. a male and female praecox.

Any luck identifying them yet? Can you get more pics so we can help you a little better?

It's interesting that you all are interested in this fish too. I wonder if people who like Celestial Pearl Danios also happen to like the Dwarf Neon Rainbow Fish (Melanotaenia praecox). I happen to be a big fan myself and have 6 of them (3M, 3F) in my main 20G tank as the dominant school.

There's something about their silvery blue scales, red/yellow fins, and their swiftness and grace. Remind me of dolphins.
