ok found out what the blue cichlid is called :) , its Kenyi Cichlid (Metriaclima lombardoi) and its a female I think males are bright yellow. Now I have to find out about the yellow stripped cichlid.

All kenyi are blue when young. The males will change yellow when they mature. These are HIGHLY aggressive fish so make sure you have a lot of space and alot of hiding places to keep them long term.

"responsible fish keeper?... Didn't know there was any other kind"

I am not retarded I just can't spell
