ID Silver Dollar Species

Can someone help identify the Metynnis species I have here. At times, they seem to show vertical stripes, and a black marking by the gills.

Metynnis hypsauchen, common Silver Dollar. The markings you see are juvenile color pattern, they lose those at maturity. They can reach over 7 inches in length, so these are still quite young.
