1. Hemichromis species (Jewel Cichlid)
2. Labidochromis caeruleus
3. Metriaclima callainos or estherae (blue male) or hybrid zebra type, too young to tell.

1 Jewel cichlid (lots of types) hard to say which one (or hybrid status or not) without seeing breeding colours.
2 Yellow lab Labidochromis caeruleus (Tank bred at a guess)
3 What we used to call cobalt zebra now Metriaclima estherae I guess.

#2 poor quality Yellow Lab, unlikely to get solid yellow body like you would expect

#3 is probably Metriclima callainos "Cobalt Zebra". Since it is solid blue at a young age and shows no eggspots, a young estherae male would unlikely look like that. Cobalts are much more common.

"What we used to call cobalt zebra is M. callainos."

Oops yes, not sold here in the UK as that as far as I know. Cobalt Zebra seems to have stuck but its clearly callainos now I look it up thanks. :thumb:

Though later it may show itself non pure as you say.
