Something didn't look right about those being acei and I couldn't think of the name i was thinking of well now I remembered. Look up Google pictures for acei because I'm still not 100% sure but it looks more to me like this

Agreed. I don't think it's an acei as well.

Just my guesses, The top: an Acei Cichlid. Bottom: Rainbow cichlid or Cockatoo cichlid

I agree with the borleyi. I have one that looks exactly the same and it was sold as a 'red fin kandango'.
