    In my opinion they are most likely young albino convicts but there are other possibilities. It is almost impossible to say with 100% certainty at that size and with no other info than the pictures.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Here is a full grown rainbow cichlid:

    http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...Mu5Q1IRqOALHhQ

    The eye shape and head shape are slightly reminiscent of the pictures you posted in the first thread, but idk. As stated these fish are no more than 2 months old and are nearly impossible to ID except by an absolute expert.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

    I'm thinking they are not rainbow cichlids. At a minimum there should be a black bar or grey bar going horizontally across the fish. I've seen juveniles at 1" that have the bar.

    One thing's for sure: they are not albino, hence the black eye, not red.

    They might be white cobalt zebras though, and these are mbuna which are aggressive in nature.

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

    Pink convicts as William noted. I think I may have produced several hundred trillion of them when I was just a wee lad. Not such a hot seller, can you see why?
