Looks like one of the peacocks, maybe a female. They need to mature a little before accurate sexing can be done.

I don't know exactly what they are even if I would definitely agree on a peacock.

The only thing that seems obvious to me is the fact that the one at the top is a female and the one at the bottom with the blue fin is the male.

hope it helps

I look a bit around on internet

Your fish is probably an african cichlid because of the dark stripes along the body but it is not a Aulonocara baenschi (yellow peacock) because when juvenile, they already have a kind of blue head and a yellow top fin which is not the case for you (it is more the opposite in fact :)).

more later
