New Cichlids. Help ID

Got these two today

The colorful one might be some type of elongatus? He is a mean fish. He is already chasing others away.

The yellow that looks like maybe a kenyi?

You guys let me know.

The first one looks like a male johanni that is starting to transform from the yellow youth to the blue adult color but its hard to tell being blurry and all. I have 2 and the second one I got from a private breeder is almost done doing the same thing. The last one Im not sure about.

No No No i am 100% positive yellow one is a Pseudotropheus crabro "bumblebee" and the blueish one is a male Melanochromis chipokae.
