You've got some really nice pictures there but I'm not going to be much help.
In pic#1, to me the orange one looks like a Metriaclima estherae (red zebra-probably male)
the light blue one with dark blue stripes looks like a Metriaclima lombardoi (kenyi) also in the last pic (though it has to many stripes)
Pic#2,3,&4 no idea
Pic#5 some kind of Pleco (not a malawi cichlid)
Pic#6,7,&8 no clue
Pic#9 the yellow one looks like a Labidochromis caeruleus (yellow lab or electric yellow)
no idea about the other in this pic.
Pic#10 I think is the kenyi again
Sorry I couldn't be more help. I enjoyed the great pics though :thumb:

What is: a bunch of hybrids? As far as i know its when 2 different types of fish breed together to produce a hybrids. Over here in england wild fish like rouch & bream found in lakes and rivers somtimes breed with each other to make a rouch bream hybrid there not the only fish just one of many i know of. Hope this help . :thumb:

There is no way that is a gold nugget...That is some type of hypostomas. Looks like the spotted sailfins at my work.

4 looks like one of my saulosis, but there are some minor differences.

6 is either a L. twavasea(spelling) or a L. fuelborni(spelling)

^^That is a true gold nugget...NOTHING like what is pictured. I have one of these in with my africans.

I thinkl #7 is a kenyi, #10 and the one in #1 have too many bars.
#6 is no labeotropheus, just the pic makes is appear so, view the full size and it's obviously not.
I don't think they're all hybrids.
