It will be easyer if you got a picture of them in the tank after they colored up.

I will take more pictures later then! Hoping I have a breeding pair.

They were sold to me as "Kribensis Dwarf African cichlids" although my LFS has had the name wrong on a few different fish

The dorsal and analfins on the outer two looked pretty pointed makes me believe the two are male

I agree the outer ones do look like males the middle one has no spots on the tail so it may be a female. Some species are harder to identify than others.

Thanks all for the replys!

They are settling into their new set up well I think. It's crazy how much more color they got once I put them in the tank. Attached are the best pics of them I could get so far.

They are all males, including the one without spots in the fins. He has the pointed ventrals of a male, and that is the only 100% accurate way to sex Pelvicachromis species.

Thanks for the tips! Hopefully my LFS will get more in and I can find a female. And hope I can tell when I pick one out haha
