Red Irian Rainbow Fish

I bought 6 Red Irian Rainbows.
3 were 2 inch and the other 3 were 1.25''

The three 2 inch fish were all a deep maroon color.
one of the 1.25'' fish was deep maroon but 2 had a brilliant yellow color and some deep red. Are these males?

Man it is so hard to get male fish lately. Seems like the fish stores are picked over quickly and the females sit until gone before another order is placed.

Thoughts?

Any chance you can post a few pictures? I'd love to see them (am partial to Rainbows).

Yeah that happens with some of the rainbows. I know at my store, they are 30 for a m/f pair, or 30 for just a male.

I've bought them online and they came in pretty small - their coloration will change as they grow.
