The first one is most definitely a Pseudotropheus acei (Msuli variant). Gephyrochromis is a very old classification for them, but a few places still have it on their ordering lists.

The second one are from the haplochrome group in Lake Malawi. They look like a Protomelas species, but I am not sure which one. I personally have a Protomelas taeniolatus (red Empress), but there are a couple that look very similar as juveniles.

What did you buy them as?

The second fish may be Fossorochromis rostratus? The markings are not quite right, but I cannot remember if the spots develop more as the (females) get larger or not? Anyway, the head shape reminds me of Fossorochromis rostratus.
