The yellow one is that a female saulosi I think hard to tell on my phone screen. The one on the right is that a crabro ?

My guess... GUESS. Is that you have a right- bumblebee, left- kenyi or demasoni, and middle- electric yellow or lab. Although they look pretty young.

Bumblebee and crabro are the same fish. I wasn't sure about the yellow lab/ caeruleus as I couldn't see any black on the dorsal. I think demasoni would be darker wouldn't it ? Kenyi is a good shout I need a bigger screen lol.

Yep I agree completely. But I'm unsure of the age of these 3. I believe that although the color on a demasoni is absolutely remarkable, I'm sure a really young individual could be as dull as this one. As with the lab, I have a lab with bareeeeeeely any black on the dorsal. I'm sure there is a few out there without any black, also I'd say, based off of other species, not all but most, I'd say males may have a greater black stripe on them than the average female.

I'd say kenyi more then dem though. I think I see brown on it and one of my kenyias recently showed a large amount of color loss replaced by a dull brown!

Anyone else got thoughts

I don't think the blue one is a demasoni or kenyi a closer pic would help but the other two I think you guys are right.

It vary well could be a hybrid.

And as for that other fish that got posted, looks like a hybrid to me, or a cobalt zebra.
