Uh oh. The vertical barred fish is Metriaclima lombardoi a.k.a. Kenyi. The horizontal striped fish look like Melanochromis auratus. These two species are some of the most aggressive African cichlids commonly sold in the hobby. What are the dimensions of your tank?

The tank is not big enough for the aggression of these fish. Can you swap out the fish?

For a 30" tank you will want to steer away from most fish from Lake Malawi.
