    Apologies Jason. There should have been a ? behind my post.
    I am not definitely sure, but they both look like Blue Acaras to me.

    Are those pictures of the same fish or one of each fish? Both those pictures are green terrors.

    Sorry, just read the last sentence of your post. Yes those are both green terrors.

    The marking under the mouth are the best way to tell.

    What size tank are they in and what else is in with them?

    That tank is to small for 2 green terrors. They get HUGE. And black cons can get very aggressive. I would be very careful with them. They will eventually compete for territory in that tank because IMO 30 gallons is the minimum for 1. I would watch them very closely.
