And I know this is a cichlid forum, but if anyone knows the names for either of these gouramis as well that’d be cool lol. I think they’re the same, maybe male and female.

Easy one for the Gourami - Golden

OB - Peacock Cichlid for the spotted a hybrid

(I am not a very experienced Cichlid person)

Maybe Yellow Lab for the longer yellow one

Blue and black male Electric Blue Johanni
females are yellow I found out! So maybe the yellow are the female?!?

Both genders of Electric Blue Johanni (melanochromis cyanorhabdos) are blue/black horizontally striped fish.

The Johanni (melanochromis johanni) are all born yellow/yellowish. The females remain that color while males transform into blue/black fish.

The yellow Cichlid is Labidochromis caeruleus. (I think, the body looks too stumpy to be a johanni)

The cichlids likely won't get a long with the Gourami for long
