ID fish

Hello,

My friend just recently gave me her tank w/ fish included and she did not know what kind they were so I was hoping someone could identify what kind of fish I have. There are two different types, both freshwater. Thanks!

Welcomes to Aquarium Advice,

Neither of those fish are cichlids but they are gouramis,

First one is Trichogaster trichopterus (lots of color morphs).

Second one is Helostoma temminckii (commonly called kissing gourami).
