The spotted one looks something like a Venustus or maybe a young OB peacock. The blue stripped fish looks like a Kenyi.

red zebra is the red one. I am not sure of the other names.

patterns dont look right for a venestus, i would lean towards the orange-blotched peacock, but the body seems the wrong shape (too long and thin)........All yellow fish is a labidochromis caeruleus or Yellow Lab,.......all orange fish is a red zebra......the blue striped fish is more than likely a female pseudotropheus kenyii..........keep an eye on the kenyii, they can be REALLY aggressive when they reach maturity

thanks for the replies

the blue striped one IS a female kenyi, and from posting on a couple other forums im going to say that the spotted one is a hybrid or OB fuelleborni

thanks again
