Not Tang shell dwellers! Not Malawi Mbuna!

They are Malawi "Haps", Protomelas genus.

Protomelas taeniolatus "Red Empress" are the silver bodies with faint vertical bars.
Protomelas "steveni imperial" are the ones with many vertical thin dark bars. Might be "Tangerine Tiger" or a simialr fish. Blue heads with orange-ish sides.

Not claiming purity, you will have to let them grow, but you do seem to have decent fish.

Whoa....
All I could tell for certain, was that those were two different species of baby Cichlids.
They are Malawi "Haps", Protomelas genus.
Nice work. :)
