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.

The color patterns dont match also the egg spots (name slips my mind) are white instead of yellow and at full color he is not that bright.
