Red eyes means albino. Probably a "snow white" socolofi(sp?) The pleco appears to be a standard or common pleco. I commented on the other ones I know in the first post.

in the second picture the one in the lower right is a male auratus (dominate males will get dark brownish to black) and the other one that's more yellow (pic #3 on the left side) is either a female auratus or a sub-dominate male.

agreed on the Melanochromis auratus

Big blue guy is a
Cobalt Blue Zebra

Small fish may or may not be a Dragons Blood, which is a man made hybrid.

#8 is a peacock but am not 100% sure which, it is showing some signs of being a hybrid but cannot be sure just yet.

# 8 looks this it may be a hybrinized form of Aulonocara jacobfreibergi Eureka Red Peacock.

Fish in the first picture is a socolofi. Fish in the middle of the second is a cobalt blue zebra. The black one with white stripes is a male auratus. The smaller one looks to be a Melanochromis Exasperatus. The pleco looks to be a common which will outgrow the tank in time(they can get like 2ft.

I reading the thread again and I cannot believe I missed this earlier.

I am 99.9% sure the Orange fish under the Auratus is a Labidochromis textilis, they are quite rare in the trade but do appear occasionally.
