The Yellow ones look like Yellow labs and the albino is a Red Zebra I believe.

The albino looks like a regular zebra not a red.

The white one looks like albino red zebra, notice the red eyes, sign of albinism. The other almost looks like a yellow lab or a kenyi because of the vertical stripes but not positive.

The first is definitely a yellow lab. The second is either an albino zebra or an albino socolofi. The pic is kind of small so can't be sure.

How do you know it was because of the others? Have you tested your water? The other fish will eat the dead fish, but they might not have necessarily killed it.

I had to separate my Convicts as well. I put 3 convicts in with 5 Brichardi and they seem to co exist. My Brichardi are as mean or meaner. I have 5 but they are split into pairs of 3 and 2 and They don't like each other either. 2 have one end 3 have the other and the Convicts are in the middle of a 55 gallon tank.

Having breeding convicts in a tank with other fish is basically a death sentence for the other fish. The become even meaner (if that seems possible) than they already are.
