I am not THE cichlid expert so you may wanna wait on others to confirm...
I suspect the first pic being a Firemouth and the last with the part yellow one being a bumblebee one.

the second is not a bumble bee....

I don't believe the top one is a firemouth. My firemouth has spots, one on his gill cover, one halfway back and one at the base of his tail. Also my firemouth has vertical stripes, but no horizontal stripes. ALso the anal fin of your fish is more rounded as opposed to my firemouth that has a more pointed fin.
I am definately no where near an expert on any fish but to me, this does not look like my fish.

<--- my avatar is a picture of my firemouth

I agree

I am leaning towards a Empress
