Name that cichlid

Ok, just looking for some ID's on some africans. I'm assuming the blue one is a demasoni and I'm thinking the red one is maybe a red zebra but if someone can confirm this or give me a positive ID, I'd appreciate it.

the blue one is a Pseudotropheus lombardoi, or Kenyi. 100% sure of it. the second looks like Hemichromis lifalili, a type of jewel cichlid. not totally sure on that one though. HTH

I'm inclined to agree on the Kenyi. They are mouthbrooders. I have no ideas on the Red/Orange one.

Well, I looked up the jewel and I don't think that's it. These little guys are about 1-1.5" and longer bodied. I'm off to search the kenyi. Thanks guys.

Fluff- That sure does look like a Kenyi.

I wish I could help on the second one but I can't. Sorry Fluff.

Cool. I've offered veggies to them but they haven't taken it yet. So far I've gotten them to eat some flake and some cichlid granules. Any one with pics of adults, please share. Especially of an adult male that shows the color change. Thank you all.

fluff, in case you bought them from the same tank, i'd suspect that the orange colored guy is a male kenyi. the other's female. the orange probably will shift to a bright yellow as it matures.
don't feed them too much protein (malawi bloat ). veggies should be the staple diet.

Ok, but it is normal for the color to change so soon? From the links I read it was a maturity thing. These fish are really small. And yeah, I got them from the same tank but I picked up two brichardi as well from the same tank. Which I know if from an entirely different lake.
