Hello,
A few fish that came with a tank i purchased. I am not exactly sure what they are. First blue fish looks like a peacock to me, but color electric blue and all the guy told me its a hybrid Cichlid (thats all he gave me for info). Is it just a peacock or is it a hybrid, and if so, of what?
Second fish i have no idea and have tried to search. I have 2 of them and they both look identical, about 3 to 3.5 inches, more roundish than elongated, but fairly flat. Not super aggressive either. Also, is it a male?
Thanks for the help.

I'm not an expert and others who know more will come by but on the first picture and second pictures, the blue fish looks like a pseudotropheus acei hybrid and the yellow one like a labidochromis caeruleus hybrid.

Please ignore the yellow fish in the picture. It's the blue one on the first 2 pictures I am asking about, and then the grey and red fish in the last 2 pictures. Thanks

Deeda is correct on the fish in the last two pictures.

The blue fish is indeed a hybrid.

Do you know what the blue fish would be a hybrid between or in the least, what category of Cichlid. He is in with a mix of females and wonder what he might take a liking to. I am actually quite fond of this fish.

He is likely to spawn with any or all of the female mouthbrooders in the tank. Especially any hap or peacock female.
