Picked up a bunch of Peacock's today, except no.5 cant remember the species now for the life of me, but not too sure on the species of a few as they were all just labelled as "Assorted Peacocks", other than the OB's.
Thinking all of them are males due to the pointed dorsals but if you could ID and sex each fish that would be amazing!

Males have longer more pointed dorsal (top) and anal (bottom) fins.
Males have colour and females are usually silver/ grey without any major colour.
Males get bigger.
Males have egg spots (yellow dots) on their anal fins. Females don't normally have egg spots but some do have the odd spot.

The fish look young and young males can resemble females, but starting at the top:
first 2 pictures, males.
3rd & 4th pictures look like females OB (orange blotch/ marble peacock)
5, 6, 7 & 8 look like young males.

9 & 10 look like a Protomelas species of cichlid

11, 12, 13 & 14 males.

Last 2 pics (albino/ lutino) looks like a male.

I'm not going to try to identify species because they are a bit young.
