the 2nd and 3rd I am fairly confident are swordtails. The first one looks like a sword, especially in the 4th picture, but things are a little fuzzy to be certain. The last two I have not clue... Platies seem to have a more solid body color, while swordtails tend to have horizontal lines of slightly varied color running down their bodies. They also have a slightly slimmer body (although not always) and for some reason, to me, the rays on the fins look slightly different on the two species
