I guess that:

1 is a Steveni Taiwan Reef
2 & 4 - some type of Jacob
3 is a A. Stuartgranti
5 - no guess
6 is a borleyi
7 is a Fryeri

one right.

1... not sure, but no way he is a Taiwan Reef
2,3,4... probably some nice Stuartgranti Maleri. Nice male, and the females look like they are holding, but it is hard to know for sure as there are many related Peacocks.
5... unknown hap
6... Copidichromis borleyi 'Red Fin'
7... looks more like a O. lithobates male. ARe the sides really orangish or is that just the pic?

Thanks for you help, and thank you for spotting that they were holding, we hadnt noticed.. we have now caught her and have her in a breeding trap temporarily.
What do we do when she drops them ? Do we take her out or leave her in ?
The plan is to put her in a holding tank tomorrow... The other female we have left in the tank for now as we think she has eggs. :thumb:

#1 is not any pure Aulonocara and in all probability a hybrid.

#2 and #4 are indeed Aulonocara females.... your guess is as good as mine as to what. #2 looks a bit dark for a Maleri, but they do vary. There is a good probability that they aren't the same as your male, and you could be breeding hybrids if you raise the fry.

I would suggest #5 and #7 are also hybrids.
