So I bought these as fry and they were labeled 'swallowed tail jake'. They are not, at least they do not fit the profile. Again I apologize for the picture quality, it is in my classroom right under an emergency light that does not turn off, and I have a junk camera. Any help is appreciated. The pic is of the obvious male,there are 8 others, none showing the same color.

Look like a nice Jake to me possibly wild type. https://www.cichlid-forum.com/profiles/s ... hp?id=1380 But So many line bred guys about that you can not ID the variety/varieties or species they really come from unless you know the breeder, even then the info is often dodgy.
Could be a wild import then there is at least a chance it might be a wild type cichlid.
