Red Zebra is the small orange one.
Metriaclima callainos is definitely the Big Blue one.
White fish is an albino Pseudotropheus socolofi
Dominant male auratus horizontal black striped one.
The smaller one am not 100% sure I cannot see from the photo but does it have a shiny spot on the gill plate at all?

It still doesnt really change much in terms of stocking. It is still aggressive fish.

Welcome for the help, one thing I know an awful lot about is Lake Malawi cichlids.

It is nearly impossible to sex red zebra from pictures alone, you would have to vent them to sex them correctly...thats the joy of keeping monomorphic fish.

Would it be helpful, in the mean time, to switch up the scape?

I would NOT change it at all.. things are peaceful at the moment BUT a rescape can swing it the other way and start an all out war as fish vie for new territory.

With this tank being of aggressive fish I would leave it alone.

The Male Auratus has it in him to kill the entire tank in a very short space of time if he wants to.
