Hard to tell from those pics but looks like Lufubu or red rainbow to me.
Definitely not annectens or polli

T. polli is a junior synonym for T. annectens, and your fishes are neither. My guess would be T. moorii, but so many of these have the same sub-adult coloration (like your fishes) that it is impossible to tell which population you have at present. Post some pics once they color up and perhaps we can make a more informed assessment. :thumb:
