    Might be scissortail rasbora... maybe can do a google seach and see if the photos of those fishes match the ones in the video.

    It's not a scissortail rasbora. Size, patterns, shape and colour is not the same.

    You're right, they are not the same.

    I viewed the video on my phone and the small screen made it tough to see the actual patterns. After viewing it full screen on my PC, can see they are very different. I guess have to continue scouring the net to find more photos of similar fishes which can match those in the video.

    I have been doing that but no luck so far. Have found pretty similar species though.
    I bet it's some really obscure species barely named.

    It is not a rasbora but a characin/tetra. It could possibly be Iguanodectes spilurus.
