I'll let the experts chime in on what they are, but I'm glad you rescued these fish. From the looks of their sunken bellies, I can only imagine the water they were in, underfed or parasite? Again, I'll let the experts chime in, but glad you rescued them.

Seem right except not totally sure #3 is a pure Tangerine Tiger but is at least superficially similar

#5. has to be a Mbuna hybrid, not sure what he could be but he is kinda interesting looking

#7 maybe Protomelas spilononatus type

They seemed to just be underfed/over stressed. I was worried about parasites but they are all eating like hogs and acting healthy... just hungry.

Sounds good. Hopefully they fill out in no time then. I really like the Tangerine Tiger looking one.
