What type are these

I have 2 cichlids, a bala shark, and a common pleco in a 29 gallon. I just got this tank from a friend who has had it for 15 years (not these fish). Lupin Has told me in my previous post (new 29 gallon tank) that they are Lake Mawali. I know that it is probably early for a new thread but i am very impatient (one of my many flaws) and would like to know the exact species.





From what i understand they are both males as lupin told me in the chat area. Thanks for your help.
