In your 2nd picture the guy hiding there in the lower part in yellow is def a Labidochromis caeruleus, that I can tell ya for sure. The orange finned one, beats me, I'd re-post and ask in the cichlid section.

I'm not a 100% on the "pictus" can you compare it to pictures here or googel and see what you say (seeing the fish right in front of you Knowledge Base - Seriously Fish

im pretty sure you have a pictus cat their in the top pic...........the middle pic looks like it could possibly be a female Copadichromis borleyi (kadango).....its hard to say for sure, but it lloks to have a long pelvic fin, which these fish are known for......if thats the case, they are a somewhat peaceful african that ca reach 8 inches, but usually will only get to around 6......the bottom pic, i believe to be a Acei........I think if memory serves me,,,,,,a pseudotropheus acei is the correct name.........
