Welcome to C-F!!

I labeled your pics with numbers so:
Pic #1- The yellow & black striped fish is Melanochromis auratus, the pinkish fish with spots on the tail is commonly called a dragonblood peacock or similar names, the large pink/red fish to the far right of the pic is a blood parrot.

Pic #2 - the mottled/blotched 2 fish look like OB peacock cichlids, the yellow one with a black dorsal fin looks like a Labidochromis caeruleus or commonly called a yellow Lab.

Pic #8 - the large yellow fish with the red spot to the right of the pic looks like a tattooed blood parrot?

What are the dimensions of your tank? You have quite a few different species in that tank!
