 Both  fish  are  King  Kamfas  all  right.  The  second  one  is  fit  enough  to  be  called  a  Pearl  King.   Smile   
 The  first  is  a  a  sureshot  Rainbow  King  masterpiece  -  potential  competition  grade  fish.  The  pride  of  any  tank.  Each  and  every  feature  of  this  guy  is  par  excellent.
 You  are  a  lucky  guy  to  bag  these  beauties.
 Take  good  care  of  both  and  keep  us  updated.   Thumb Up

 Hi  Rohit,
 
 Both  look  awesome,  good  specimens.  The  second  one  for  me  at  first  glance  doesnt  look  very  Kamfa  like.  especially  the  mouth,  looks  very  ZZ  type  &  the  body  shape  is  not  very  Kamfa  like.  May  be  a  kamalau  mix  (kamfamalu).  I  could  be  wrong,  when  they  grow  bigger  you  get  to  see  the  traits  better.
 
 But  I  agree  with  Kastor,  Swapnil,  &  Mridul  in  that  the  first  is  a  very  good  King  Kamfa,  a  show  stopper  Thumb Up  ,  
 &  the  second  too  is  worth  the  buy.  Lucky  you.
 
 Regards

 Fun  Facts:  
 King  Kamfa  is  the  name  given  to  Kamfamalaus  who  retain  the  Kamfa  finnage  and  bodyform  while  incorporating  the  pearls,  flowers  and  vibrant  colouration  from  the  Kamalau.  The  best  of  both  worlds.
 Thus,  all  King  Kamfas  are  Kamfamalaus  but  all  Kamfamalaus  aren't  King  Kamfas.
 Leaving  the  monochrome  Kings  apart  (  considered  as  low  quality  and  sold  as  red/yellow/green/orange/brown  Kings  ),  they  are  further  divided  into  Rainbow  king,  Tan  King  and  Pearl  King  based  on  the  variation  in  base  colour,  flowerline  and  pearling.
 Thus,  these  are  basically  classified  on  the  basis  of  phenotype  and  not  the  genotype.  So  most  of  them,  if  at  all  fertile,  donot  breed  true.  A  single  batch  will  contain  more  than  80%  Kamfamalaus,  and  the  rest,  a  mixture  of  all   the  above  variants  and  that  too,  mostly  monochrome  King  Kamfas.  And  most  or  almost  all  of  them  will  be  sterile.
 Breeders  and  exporters,  in  order  to  maximize  their  profits,  then  give  these  guys  various  fancy  names  which  are  unheard  of  before.  Newbie  hobbyists  having  a  lot  of  dough  but  lazy  enough  to  conduct  prior  research  usually  fall  victim  in  their  desperation  to  lay  hands  upon  the  most  fashionable  and  uniquely  named  fish.
 In  all  of  this,  the  eye  colour  really  doesn't  matter.  It  really  isn't  part  of  the  criterion.  Personally,  I  think  the  coloured  eyes  look  way  better  than  the  white  eyes,  but  due  to  its  prolonged  association  with  the  classic  Kamfas,  the  white  eye  has  become  sort  of  a  status  symbol  and  a  lazy  way  to  ID  Kamfas  (  which  doesn't  stand  true  these  days  ),  inspite  of  its  lower  cosmetic  appeal.
 
 By  the  way,  when  are  you   expecting  the  shipment  Rohit?
