Thanks for the reply,

2 of them are only about 2 inches and showing some flashes of blue in the face

It's hard to tell when the fish are small. If they start getting more blue as they get bigger then they may be males.

Venting them would be the best way to see if they're male or female but it can be hard to tell on 2" fish.

I suppose time will tell i know some take a while to colour up, also I have a 6 inch dolphin cichlid and he is tank boss so I guess if they are males they would be sub dominant
