A hybrid is a mix of two different species. These are very pretty. The last pic looks like a Green Texas (Hericthys Carpintis) to me.

They could all be blood parrots.

Blood parrots came about by crossbreeding Red devils and severums, there are a lot of variations of them now as people crossbreed them with other fish.

Ideally you want to keep them to yourself and not encourage anymore hybrids as it damages the purity of the bloodlines.
Generally they arent aggressive although some can me, they need about a 55g tank or larger as they get to about 8".

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
