They yellow one is a male Kenyi

Females and males are the same yellow color until they are about 2 inches then the male brightens up and the female goes blue

I know, I have both male and female, that's why I dont think this white one is Kenyi, and this white one is not aggressive like my male Kenyi, very timid..

That's what I was thinking, my male kenyi was hyper dominate and beat this one up pretty good, my male kenyi was fighting last night with another fish when I went to bed, and I found him dead this morning, now this white thing and my female are playing around ...

Ya my male would pick on every new fish the longest, even more than the king, he picked the wrong fight last night, kinda sucks, I really like that fish, had him since it was about an inch, he died at about 5 inch, and had 3 kills under his belt..
