I suspect the ID will be very easy for some of you. Unfortunately I am not well-versed

This guy is a prolific father and a nasty boy (but very beautiful!)

There are two Mbunas in this photo - sorry they they're not displaying their sides.

The peacock is an offspring of "big blue" (above) and a now-deceased red peacock.

#1 looks like a perlmutt
#2 might be a red zebra or a Rusty? Not quite sure, because it's blurry. Probably not either.
#3 a hap or peacock. I only know mbunas, so I can't help you there.
#4 looks like a yellow lab
#5 side shots would be nice.

Thanks much!

I have to give credit to anyone who can get good aquarium photos with a phone camera! I am not that guy.

Here's a couple shots of #5 (the light blue fish with spots on the anal fin):

Here's a photo of #1 and #2. The LFS told me #2 was a "Rusty". Great fish!

Thank you very much! I have to say that I am shocked by the amount of hybridization going on in the "amateur" fish trade. I can understand why serious aquarists will only buy online, from other trusted sources.

Essentially everything in my tank, from day 1, was a hybrid! So I suppose I don't feel so bad about inadvertently producing more hybrid fry! I will have to trade back to the local fish shop to have any hope of right-sizing the populations in my tanks.
