My cichlid journey started about 1 year back when I bought 3 unknown fish at a raffle. They were bluish and came in a 7 liter tank. 2 died and the last one surviving is the bluish silver one in the pics. Then I moved the survivor to a large cement tank and added 8 fishes. 2 yellow colored ones, 4 convicts, 2 albinos. All were happy in the tank and are growing well except for the albinos. Then one of the albinos died. 2 weeks back I purchased a glass tank of 100 x 40 x 60 cm and have added all the fish to this tank. I also got 2 green terrors at this time. One of which keeps chasing the other. Not sure about the sex. Please help in identifying the fish I have. Suggestions are welcome.
I also have 10 tetras and 5 shrimps in another tank, a lily pond with a variety of mollies and a couple of guppies and many plants, and a tank with 2 RES.

So I've provisionally identified the fish as
2 Green terrors - No idea about sex
2 male Kenyi
4 female Kenyi
2 convicts
1 albino socolifi
1 powder blue socolifi
Does it seem right? Unfortunately I don't have another tank to separate the Americans from the africans. They seem fine for now, except for one green terror chasing the other. There are a lot of hiding places though.

Not sure what you are calling Convicts, all I see are Kenyi with bars.
You have a Red Zebra probably hybrid in there, the orange one
An albino Socolofi
A regular blue Socolofi
and those two Green Terror type fish, those will get bigger than the others

The ones I think are convicts are wider top-down than the kenyi. They also have an orange coloration near the belly area. If they are not convicts, the only ones not belonging to the tank are the green terrors. **** the LFS who said that they were compatible.
Also I don't think I have red Zebra. The yellow ones look like male kenyi.
