Kenyi fry coloring

We have a couple dozen kenyi fry, half are blue half are pale yellow almost albino. They have normal eyes though and you and see some blue tint on the fins. I know dominant males will go yellow gold but these are only a few weeks old and have not changed color since birth. Wondering what does it mean?

Actually, to have hybranizing ruled out mother Kenyi was in a tank with a male kenyi , 3 female and 1 male Otopharnyx Lithobates, a pair of Psuedotropheus Acei, 2 females and 1 male Metriaclima sp. zebra long pelvic and 2 common plecos.

the fry in the begining were almost to small to see they are now close to a month old and about 1 inch in length most had there blue coloring in the first few days the others are still a fleshy pink.

There is ZERO chance of telling what they are until they are older.

Many cichlids will take on the appearance of a male or female in early life until they mature and start showing adult color there is no way of knowing either their sex or whether they are hybrids.

Do not even attempt to vent them until they are at least 2".
