Top one is a Nimbochromis venustus female who is not quite mature yet.

Bottom one is a Pseudotropheus saulosi juvenile.

Thanks for the info I thought the same thing but this fish has stripes like a peacock the venustus has like blotches not stripes so I don't think it's that but I could be wrong.The second fish is not pseudotropheus either I have one of those in my tank, totally different looking fish the white fish has the same type of body and fins as the first fish I posted. Sorry not trying to b an ass hole just trying to find out what these fish really are and they very well could b a mixed breed.
