First pic, I bought as a batch of fry that was advertised as Itungi acei and now they all look different. Some have yellowish or orange tails and different body colourings and markings.
2nd pic, pair bought advertised as Red Shoulder Peacocks. The large male is the terror of the tank.

1. could be part Itungi Acei, maybe a mix with the common yellow tailed Acei. Hard to judge without seeing all of the colour phases the batch would show.

2. Not a pure Red Shoulder Aulonocara, definitely an unnatural hybrid. Suppose he is blue with a reddish shoulder, and the seller/breeder didn't care if they were pure of not.
