Hmmm the blue one? Looks like some sorta metriaclima maybe judging by his beefy build! Look at this site and see what he looks like. As for others the only other one I see clearly is a dragons blood peacock or fire fish.

Thanks! Let me look that up. What does vent mean? I recently had some fry. We had to puta divider in the tank and one day I noticed some real quick movements by the fish on the other side. My holding cichlid had released fry and they were small enough to get to the other side. They were eaten. We managed to save 12. Growing well.
