    i think the first one is a lunare wrasse (Thalassoma lunare) but im not to sure, the second one (with the stripes) is a two tone wrasse (also called a killer whale wrasse)

    Would not agree with @Wesd about the first one being a two tone wrasse, Halichoeres prosopeion does not have stripes unless this is another variation in the species.What wolud help though is to know if these were local caught as mentioned above.;)

    the black and white one with the orange tail is definately a two tone juvenile, i had one but unfortunately lost it when my heater malfunction in my QT (really nice fish, great personality), the first one (that i think could be a lunar) is the one im not sure about (had a pair of those little ones, nice and colourful but very agro, so released them a few weeks after i caught them) :)
