Hi, this is my first post on any forum on any website, so sorry if my formatting sucks.

I got a good deal on unsexed 1-2 inch Peacocks and Haplochromines. The only problem is, they weren't labeled. I can identify some, just not confidently. There are also some I have no idea about. I'd appreciate it if you can identify any of these cichlids. I believe I got cichlids from Malawi, Tanganyika, and Victoria. All these fish are recovering from ich btw, so the colors are a bit faint.

#1 Color doesn't show well on cam, it has a faint red/orange on top and green/yellow on the bottom

#2 Red Finned Borleyi ???

#3 Light faint colors, vertical lines

#4 Many vertical lines, red-ish coloration on anal and pelvic fins

#5 Dark gray/black with vertical lines

#6 Light faint colors with vertical lines

#7 White/silver body, orange fins, large and small black spots (The black spots don't seem to be parasites, I've honestly never seen a fish like this before)

#8 Silver body, black lines

#9 Yellow body, black lines

#10 Faint green/yellow body, black bars

Any help in identifying these would be greatly appreciated. They're moving to my main tank once they are big enough to not be eaten by my Venustus. Thanks for taking a look!
