Female Peacocks

Is there any way to ID them? I have 3 females, all the same size, approx 3-4 inches. I rescued them from someone awhile back and he had no idea they were even peacocks...lol. They all look exactly the same, here are a couple photos:

Can't say for certain, but they do look rather similar to my eureka reds. Quite possibly Aulonocara jacobfrebergei, they're a popular species and there are several different color variants.

Ok, kind of a guessing game...not sure what to do with them? Lol. I would like to get a male for them but I don't know what to get!

Try posting the pics on cichlid-forum.com, maybe someone there can give you a solid ID.
