I couldn't resist the tank at petco with the "mixed" african cichlids so now I'm in need of some help in identifying them.I've looked through the profiles but since these are juveniles I'm having some trouble finding a picture I think looks similar enough to be sure.So I'm hoping you guys can help.Thanks!

Here are the links to the pics of them

This one is pretty easy to see its light blue with black vertical bars

This one is a little harder to see but its like a dark blue or black with a little lighter blue vertical bars that you can barely see.Also its so small you can barely see yellow egg spots on his fin and like a border of yellow on his dorsal.

This guy is so tiny it was impossible to get a good picture.He has horizontal black bars and there is a little white bar on both sides of the black bar.

Hope I described them enough that with the pictures maybe someone could guess what they might be. =)

Thanks for the help in identifying them.I've just newly switched to cichlids and figured these would be ok starter fish although I've read about the problems with buying "mixed" africans from pet stores I gave in when I seen them, I've only had angelfish in the past so they're new to me.I'll have to find a better supplier to finish stocking my tank after I cull these guys out.

Ok here are some more photos of #1.I'm assuming he's a hybrid but I was hoping to get a guestimate of what species cross he might be.He's pretty peaceful and spends the majority of his days eating algae off the decorations and even off of my glass when he finds some. =) He has a yellow outline on all of his fins and a sparkly light blue on his gills although you won't be able to see it in any of the pics.
