    The look like Mbunas in the Zebra family. Vegetarians, do not feed them too much protein foods.

    Most Mbunas that we all buy from LFS are a hybrid mix (Mutts), so there is no way of telling what they truly are, but definitely in the Mbuna family.

    If you're going to add fish, make sure you add multiples at a time and add your most aggressive ones last.

    Like Tanker said they could be mutts, the gene pool is rather muddy these days. Definitely all Mbuna though. Here is my best guesses anyway though 1- Kenyii 2 - Is it white? If so, White lab (Labidochromis caeruleus Nkhata Bay) 3 - Red Zebra
