Look What I Got!

Omg I'm so excited right now. Look what I just picked up at my LFS! Can you take a guess what they are
No number 1 is not an OB but I'm 99.9% sure he's a sunshine benga and number 2 I'm lost. Number 3 is supposedly an electric blue johanni.

His colors are blossoming into a stunning red and blue

Deepwater hap is developing a very powder blue iridescent sheen

Ok I just did a little research and im pretty sure I just bought 2 Otopharynx lithobates males. Number 1 being a "yellow blaze" and number 2 being a "sulfer head hap" But number 3 is still a mystery.

I love the lithobates. Great fish.
I just got one, but he's still a little guy.

From far away the first fish's yellow looks like a white stripe from the tip of the mouth to the back of the dorsal fin. But up close its yellow. Think maybe fish #3 is a yellowfin borleyi?

He kinda does but it doesn't explain the dark splotches all over him. Where the otopharynx lithobates would explain them.

I bought them under false pretenses. They were all labeled as electric blue johanni knew that wasn't right immediately.
