How big is fish 1? It's certainly not a fish that should be kept with the other fish. There are one of two species, depending on the answer.

Fish 2 is hard to tell... it's not coloured up right for anything at the moment, so it could be many things, or a hybrid, depending on when it gets it's proper colour back, or if it stays that colour.

Fish 3 appears to be one of the M. sp. msobo "Deep". http://malawi.si/Malawi/Mbuna/Maylandia ... index.html

Yup..Nice too... but doesn't belong with the mbuna at all. It would be great if you could find a female, relatively rare fish.

I am just starting the hobby. I was just given the cichlids after buying a tank. I still have a lot to learn.
