1...i just bought a BRIGHT orange and BRIGHT yellow ones to try out. Was this a good idea even though they are all african cichlids?
It depends which species they are and what other fish you have in your tank.

2. what types are the orange and yellow ones?
Pics will help as suggested.

3. i have one whom i assume is a female that seems to have traits of males? why? she is blue, but does the digging in the gravel and chases all the other fish away from her area
Females do those things too. Or it might be a male. Behavior is not always a reliable way to sex fish.

4. i have an african frog in my tank that they never bother but thay have bothered any other fish i've had before them. why the frog is cool?
Is it a dwarf african? Or an african clawed? I think diet would be an issue since bloodworms are a staple for the frogs and not recommended for mbuna. The dwarf needs non-aggressive tank mates and the clawed will eat tank mates. I'd do the frogs in a separate tank.

5 Finally, my tank is a 55gal and i have about 15 total of these fish and some look both male and female, but i do have more blue than yellow ones u say are males.
15 is a good number for a 55G depending on which species and what genders. Pics are the next step. :thumb:
