Default Questions about my Budgies!

I had 3 Parakeets, but lost River (the purple one if I can figure out how to post pictures!) on Valentines day. I am now down to two, Clair and Moon. I named them after my favourite piano solos, Clair de Lune, River flows in you, and Moonlight Sonata. I am aware that Moon is a dark eyed clear... though when I shined a light on her head, I could see iris rings that are not otherwise visible in natural light. Is it possible that she is not a dark eyed clear? She is PURE white, not a stitch of any other colour on her. Clair I believe is your standard Skyblue Cinnamon Wing, though PLEASE correct this if I am wrong. I would also like to know what River was, if anyone is able to tell. I got all of my babies at PetValu here in Ontario, Canada, (I know.. not a great idea...) I got Clair at the end of July, and I figure she was about 2 and a half months at the time. I got River and Moon at the same time, mid-September, and both were sold to me as 'babies'... so roughly the same age that Clair was when I got her. (him? I don't know!) hahah. Clair's cere is violet/purple, with a fairly bright blue around her nostrils. I know that it is more difficult to identify sex in dark eyed clears, but Moon's cere is a sort of pinky purple (looks pink when comparing the cere to Clairs) but has white around her nostrils. Though I wasn't initially planning on breeding at all, I would still love to know their true genders. I may or may not keep their female names if they happen to be male hahah. So please help me identify the following:

Type of Parakeet/Budgie that they each are (were in River's case :'()
The gender of Clair and Moon
If Moon is a Dark Eyed Clear? Or if she CAN be with SUBTLE iris rings?

Thank you so much!
OH AND I'M SORRY ABOUT THE DIRTY CAGE IN A COUPLE OF THE PICTURES! HAHA, THEY HAVE MULTIPLE CAGES, AND I WAS IN THE PROCESS OF TAKING THEM OUT OF THE PLAY CAGE WHEN I SNAPPED THOSE PICTURES, THEIR CAGE NEVER, EVER LOOKS THAT DIRTY. OOPS!

You have my deepest sympathies over your River's passing.
I have answered your queries on gender on your other thread.

Your Moon is a white based (blue series) dark-eyed clear budgie.
While these budgies don't develop irises as they grow and mature, if we point a flash light directly at them or take a picture with a flash, it's possible to see the very dark outline on the eye and that's normal. Under normal lighting, the eye is fully black in colour. This can also be seen on recessive pied budgies.

Your Clair is a sky blue opaline budgie.

River was a cobalt violet golden face budgie.
