The tank being a bowfront corner tank is not suitable for 15 fish, to keep that many in a tank like that would lead to dead fish. In fact in all reality it is not suitable for cichlids at all, cichlids need the space of a long tank, not a bow front.
There is one fish in your album (fish #3) which is an extremely aggressive, territorial guy, the Blue Johanni (Melanochromis cyaneorhabdos), this guy alone will stress the entire tank out when he is older. Not to mention he has the capability of killing everything in that tank. I would highly recommend you get rid of this guy.
Picture #7, 10, 11 - all need to go as they will simply grow too big for the tank.
7 is a young Placidochromis Milomo, I am 100% certain of this as it is exactly what my babies looked it. These guys are slow growers so they would be good for 2 years max before they needed a bigger tank.
10,11 - Are both Nimbochromis Venustus as I thought, these guys get to 10" and if fed right can attain this in under a year.
2,4,5,6,9 - could stay in the tank, but not all together, mixed bunch of the convict, peacocks and #5 which could be a few fish (cannot identify it properly as it is a bit young yet)
Pick which fish you prefer out of them all with the exception of the big ones and we can try and help work out a stocking that will be the most successful.
