I have 11 small cichlids and think i have id'd most of them just want to get some help from some more experienced people. Please watch video in next post to help i could only put 8 pics here i have 11 fish. I really cant figure out the white ones there are 2 albinoes of some sort, 1 has orange on his fins the other doesnt. also have 2 yellow ones one solid yellow the other has a black stripe on his top of his fin? I just want it to keep a log of what i have. Thanks alot i took pics the best i could fish dont sit still hard to take pics. I also made a small video maybe it would be easier seeing them.

1. Looks like possibly an albino greshakei
2. Look like male and female auratus
3. Venustus
4. Maybe white socolofi
5. Albino greshakei
6. cobalt blue zebra and cant tell the other
7. red zebra
8. normal greshakei

My best guesses. One in the video that is blue with yellow fins is possibly an acei.

Female melanochromis chipokae in photo #2 (not sure if the male is also a m. chipokae or m. auratus, it seems to still be transitioning in color).

The fish in photo #4 is some sort of zebra (member of metriaclima genus).

The blue fish in photo #6 probably a 'powder blue' pseudotropheus socolofi.
