Having some aggression issues, need to know what I have before I can pass judgement.

The first one appears to be a female or juvenile specimen of some sort of dimorphic zebra species, not sure what species though, as they're are many dimorphic zebra species.

As an example, here's a female Metriaclim sp. Zebra 'Chilumba' (Luwino Reef); (the male counterpart of this species is depicted in my avatar):


If it is a female it will retain the current color it has; if it is a male it will undergo a color transition.

Most zebra's max out at 4"-6", some get upwards of 8".
