Default Identify this fish

Hey guys, in this aquascape picture there is a fish that has long fins, can anyone identity the type for me? It seems to have like a bosamani body shape but I've never seen one like that before.

Their mouths are pretty small and they mostly feed in the mid water so you'd need slow sinking small pellets or live daphnia.

i love threadfins! baby brine ( frozen or live) works well. I never could find a pellet they would eat, but flakes as they were sinking were fair game.

Hikari makes a pellet food for small fish or fry.

I had some with endler hybrids. It made them more gregarious I think and they learn what to eat like small pellets. The threadfins would display at the guppies too
