Yellow ones are approximately Aulonocara sp. Maleri but may be hybrids of similar fish, so they cannot be ID exactly
The other Aulonocara are Jacobfreibergi "Eureka" which is a common man made strain in the hobby
The deep blue one is probably a Scienochromis fryeri hybrid, Fryeri is the famous Electric Blue Ahli/ Hap... doesn't seem pure guessing from the one pic
Also have the so called OB Peacock hybrids and many Moorii "Dolphins" in there... you need a big tank

These fish may have color now because they were artificially hormoned to sell easier, a lot of the fish may lose color in the next few weeks.

WOW! You're awesome! And spot on, thanks!!

I went somewhere and there was at least a hundred to choose from, so I picked the brightest ones.
Great call on the Maleri types, I'm thinking it could be this one: Aulonocara sp. "Stuartgranti Maleri" (Chidunga Rocks) https://www.cichlid-forum.com/profiles/ ... hp?id=1408 or this one Aulonocara sp. "Stuartgranti Maleri" (Nakantenga Is.) https://www.cichlid-forum.com/profiles/ ... hp?id=1411 or like you said a hybrid of a few.But great call man!!

For the red ones too, looks like Jabo Eureka https://www.cichlid-forum.com/profiles/ ... hp?id=1377

I agree the blue looks like an electric blue hap

No worries for the overstocking, it's very temporary, plus doing 30%-40% water changes twice weekly there. They'll get there own tank soon. Thanks again!!! Very helpful!!
