do these all start off as blue juveniles and the females go brownish
brought some fish labelled as these and they are all blue but no colour in the fins yet

Here is the species profile and you can see pics of juveniles and females.https://www.cichlid-forum.com/profiles/ ... php?id=794

looks like i have some mislabeled fish then
i thought they looked more like Pseudotropheus socolofi Powder blue
one of them has a slight bit of back on the dorsal fin

I don't think black on the dorsal should be there at any age.
From your description (all blue juveniles) I was wondering about hormones.

they are all pale blue with darker bars just about visable

showed pictures to a local fish breeder /trader and she says they are cobalt blues

Still should not be any black on the dorsal of a cobalt blue (which is really Metriaclima callainos).
