Rainbowfish ID

I think my Dwarf Rainbowfish are Neon Dwarf Rainbowfish Melanotaenia Praecox based on the photo in the profile. I've got 9 in a group but only one has red tipped fins like the photo, the other 8 have yellow tipped fins. Is this a sexual dimorphism or an age thing or have I got 8 fish that are not Melanotaenia Praecox?

I bought a group of dwarf rainbow fish a few year back and out of the ten, 6 were red and 4 were yellow, I was told it was more than likely a poor breeding thing but I never found any difference with them and they stayed yellow, I actually quite liked the yellow colouring. So will be interested in finding out what you discover.
I was told by one that it could be a cross breeding with a boesemani rainbow that caused the yellow colouration.

Bosemani genes might tend towards a more orangey hue as they grow. I'll keep my eye on them.

They look like Dwarf Neon Rainbows, I've kept them a few times. The red ones are the males and the females have the yellowy fins.
