id help, please

These little guys were just listed as "assorted cichlid" in the store, any ideas on who they may be? I'm new to cichlids and these guys were an impulse buy when I saw them being bullied in the store tank. The yellow one is tiny and hasn't grown much, about an inch long. The blue one is growing quickly and is short of 2 inches. The yellow one is also timid while the blue one is really aggressive towards his pellets but not his little friend. he attacks them when I drop them in, it's so cute!

They will be living in a cycled 20gal with a fluval U2 filter, is that a good size for 2? Or will I need to upgrade as they grow? Also, would they bother clown loach and bn pleco? My sister's friend is adopting all of our Mollies and other little tropical fish from us but we would like to keep the clowns and bn if it is possible.
