Well, you say you've been told that these fish are not compatible. Yet, you failed to listen to the voice of wisdom. Some may have told you what you wanted to here. You followed their advice even though you had more people telling you different. So, here's the deal. Either ditch the Africans or can the South Americans. They are not compatible!!!!!
Not only do they come two completely different biotopes, they have different requirements as to water conditions, they need different foods. The Africans are mbuna, algae grazers. The South Americans are predators. So, ditch one or the other groups and build on what you decide to keep.
By the way, what size tank do you have? That tank looks rather small for any of the fish you have mentioned.
