1. If it's grey and not blue, no idea.
2. Melanochromis something. Maybe maingano, since it looks small and is already blue?
3. OB Zebra. Or if it's top lip is overhanging its mouth, OB Labeotropheus. But I think it's the first.
4. Possibly a female peacock? Need a better shot to see body type.
5. Cobalt blue zebra. Met. callainos
6. VC-10 hap? Blotches seem too scarce though.

i appriciate the help

the first one is diffently grey with dark grey/black stripes with the little bit of yellow on the dorsal and anal fin, his body shape looks very similar to my demasoni but larger and a diffrent mouth.

i'll try and get a better shot of #4

when i got #6 there were some other ones in the tank with a yellow ridge on the dorsal fin
