Types of Cichlids
 
Hey guys, I've been setting up a cichlid tank recently and being a new fish owner I was just wondering if these guys should be kept together, and I was also wondering what type they are (I know the last one is a yellow lab). So far they've been together for a couple months without too many problems.. Thanks.

If the top fish is purple in coloration then it is Psedotropheus Acei

Second fish is a Texas cichlid showing signs of stress.

Third looks like a possible hybrid as it has a weird head shape.

2nd pic looks like some type of Vieja. 3rd pic is possibly a cyrtocara moori (Blue Dolphin cichlid).

I agree second pic looks to be a vieja of some type probably a hybrid. First pic looks like a red fin borleyi to me.

First one, the fins would be more orange / Red if it was a red fin borelyi.
Second fish more I look at could be a Vieja tuyrensis.or Vieja Ufermanni. It has a serious problem though with a chunk missing from its side
The third one could indeed be a cytocara moori however the coloration seems too dark and usually at that size the "head bump" would be more pronounced.

third one looks like pseudotropheus acei ngara
