Number one is a Metricalima such as greshakei, pyrsonotos, or similar. Something about the fish seems a little off, it almost recalls a labidochromis hongi in a way. In any case, it can be difficult to differentiate between the different "red top zebra" species and without a collection point it will probably be hard for anyone to say for sure.

Number two is a juvenile neolamprologous tretocephalus, but it is either crossed with something or it is many many generations from the wild. The fish is supposed to have 5 black bars but this specimen has six. It also has a slight yellowish coloration which I have never seen before.

I think nubmer three is a haplochromine, but I can't be much more help than that.

1. Face shows that he is a Labidochromis "Hongi"... thou I agree he looks very oddly like a Greshakei. Suppose hybrid may be possible. More photos may help.

2. Neolamprologus sexfasciatus (Gold) from Lake Tanganyika

3. Chilotilapia euchilus
