Hyphessobrycon eques, serpae tetra. Looks to have a touch of fin rot.

I initially thought that but I have 5 and non of them have the black spot that are on all the google images, and I’ve medicated for the fin rot, thank you.

They don't all have the spot which can also vary in size, shape, and density. Have a skim through the images on this link to see the variance (including some with no spot). Yours were probably all from a single spawn and have the same genetics, hence all missing the spot. https://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/hyphessobrycon-eques/
