Hi there, I'm brand new to to this message board!
I've had my cichlid tank set up for about a month or so, but I need help identifying a few of my cichlids... As I didn't write down their species when I bought them (the store owner helped me choose cichlids for my tank set up). They are the following:
The small one I thought was a demasoni, but I believe it to be a female Kenyi
My orange fin/dark blue one I believe is a aulonocara jacobfreibergi but I'm not sure
And lastly, I'm not sure what my dark blue/yellow fin guys are.
Thanks!!

top... common blue juvenile Kenyi, no sign of being male, but the fish seems immature yet.
middle... Yellow Tail Acei, thought to be Pseudotropheus elegans... males tend to be darker while females more violet
bottom... commonly sold "Eureka" type Jacobfreibergi, which is a mass market "peacock". only males have color but juveniles are often sold hormoned for temproary color

Great!!! Thank you so much!!
Question about the Kenyi, I bought two females, but one didn't make it. If this one is truly female, I should not have any aggression issues... Should I?
