The odd one out appears to be a peacock, the first set of pics had me convinced it was female but after viewing the second pic Im not convinced. Better pics may help with sexing the fish although it could be too young. Im not very experienced with Vics but the rest do appear to be Astatotilapia latifasciata(zebra obliquidens)

Yes, the odd fish is clearly not the same but a Malawi cichlid that is Aulonocara or a hybrid of Aulonocara. Hard to ID for sure, A. jacobfriebergi would be my first wild guess or a hybrid. Kinda skinny.

It isn't an OB... have to wait until it fattens up some, but noki is about as accurate as you are going to get for now.
