Look more like (Metriaclima) Lombardoi that may have cross bred with (metriaclima) aurora, the shape to me looks Lombardoi. Were these purchased from a shop or local breeder. If you got them from a shop were they really cheap or labeled as assorted, maybe you bought them at auction?

no they are not aurora

if they are aurora

I would cull them and start again

as they are not aurora that look like aurora.

If you are going to keep aurora

I reccomend getting some that look like aurora.

If you have to get them from a shop

to actually get aurora

then I would do that

buying fish that are ?mystery? fish

especially mbuna

is not usually reccomended.
