I'm thinking Maculippinsis/Ellioti?

They are about 3-4" in length.

T. maculipinnis and ellioti are the same fish.

Using that picture its hard to tell but they look like. T. ellioti/maculipinnis. I don't think you'll get a 100% ID because you don't know the lineage - meaning where they came from and who were the parents.

This is my ellioti, but she's female and has fry at the moment so her stripes are darker
