New African Cichlids

Hey guys,

I went to my local fish store and picked up four juvenile African cichlids. It is the first time that I've visited this store in particular and I was a bit disappointed that the employees were not very familiar with their stock. I was sold these as mixed African cichlids and I was hoping some of you could help me identify what they are in terms of species and gender. I've always kept nano sized fish from south/central America so this is a learning experience for me.

I uploaded a short video with some cheesy music to YouTube. I tried to capture all four of my cichlids:

The striped one is Auratus, the yellow one in front is Kenyi. I couldn’t really see the other two but chances are the blue one is either another Kenyi or a cobalt zebra. As far as that white one my best guess is albino red zebra considering they like to carry those in petsmart. I could be wrong though I can’t really see it.
