The second picture (middle cichlid) is a Firemouth cichlid (Thorichthys meeki). It's a little dark colored possibly because of the dark substrate, but it is most definitely a Firemouth cichlid. All the markings are visible, including the gill plate spot, as well as it's body shape and snout. Not a spilirum nor cutteri.
Picture # 3 (last picture) is what is known in the hobby as a Neon jewel or Turqoise jewel. Probably the most common Jewel cichlid in the trade today. It is not known exactly what and from where this jewel cichlid comes from. Could be a line bred strain or just have an unknown collection point, but it is virtually identical to the regular common jewel (Hemichromis guttatus) and differs in having much more bright blue spots.
