wondering what fish these are...

these are 3 fish weve aquired over the past few months and they were in community tanks that the fish store didnt know what they were either...the white one was actually called an oscar by one of the employees...ha...the black one was yellow striped going down its sides, it still has it on fins, but down his side(excuse the bad pics) hes now a whitish striped bluish black fish with the nice yellow fins...not sure on the other two though...any ideas?

its definitely no type of convict......I would look at the african peacocks, the body type is right, but i have never seen a color combo like that...........Maybe its a orange blotched albino peacock.....Only thing i can suggest
