First, may I welcome you to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. And to this wonderful hobby.

I think you may have some issues with this mix of fish in (to them) such a small space. The Golden cichlid is presumably Melanochromis auratus which is very aggressive. The Blue dolphin Cyrtocara moorii attains 8+ inches and is by comparison peaceful but need a much larger space.

Our member Tazman can elaborate, he has considerable experience with cichlids.

Next issue is cycling, is this tank cycled? Of were the fish added to a new setup? You can read about cycling here:
