Without a larger picture it is nearly impossible to tell what they are.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

If that guy was only a foot, I have no spatial sense *lol* I don't even know where to look for him.
What if thats the shape what about a tinfoil barb possibly? They can get over a foot long.

I am 99.9% sure the orange ones are indeed Red Zebra (Metriaclima estherae)

Without a picture of the silver one it is nearly impossible to guess. I have seen Red Zebra once in a tank with Rhamphochromis macrophthalmus (Lake Malawi Pike Cichlid) but it takes someone who really knows about cichlids to do that.
