The first 2 pictures are possibly a rusty cichlid. The last one is maybe a kissing gourami.

If that is a gourami, the dorsal would make it along the lines of a Blue, Pearl or Moonlight. The other species have much wider dorsals, meaning, they extend further along the dorsal ridge than the one in the photos. Not saying it is, just noticing the finnage.

First 2 are definitely not Rusties (I have some, adult and juveniles)

It looks like a young female convict...but could also be a couple of others, little early to tell as it is not colored enough.

Third could be a gold gourami although it is very hard to see clearly in the picture.

I am slightly concerned as to why you purchased fish knowing nothing about them?

One should never purchase fish without researching about their care, water parameter requirements and compatibility with any tank mates.

Sorry about that picture but the gourami does have the same pttern as a gold gourami but not the same colour its more of a pale pink colour

And it may be a convict i had a closer look at them

I brought the fish and a tank of trade me for a very cheap price the auction said 2 neon tetras ,2 gouramis, 1 cat fish (bronze corydora I found out) and two fish with blue eyes

I brought them that being all in the same tank together for half a year they would most likely get along but posted on here to find out the breeds and make sure the get along in my tank if not I have a spare tank to hold them incase i need to find tem a new home

Ps- all going well and happy

I can't imagine those fish would get along, at least not for long. I would separate them now before trouble brews!

Yes, separate the cichilds to be by themselves. They've already bitten the pelvics off the gourami! I'd also bet that there used to be more than 2 neons.
