    I know the two are parrot cichlids but I think the pink and purple is a peacock but I might be wrong.

    I know the blue one is a demasoni but not sure about the orange one.

    Another pic of the orange one with I believe a jack Dempsey behind it.

    Looks like an albino peacock but I can't be too sure. Haven't really kept much Africans.

    Also I hope that they're only in that tank temporarily. I wouldn't mix CA's with African cichlids

    Unfortunately they were the first fish I ever bought and I didn't know much back then or else I wouldn't have mixed them. Ive never seen aggression between any of them but I think this may be from them all growing up right since they were babies. I also have lots of caves and rocks from them to hide so I think this helps.

    Now that they gotten bigger I bought a 75 to move them to and I'm trying to figure out exactly what I have to try to make the water parameters as best as I can to cater to all of them.

    Lookup albino aulonocara baenschi but I could be wrong. I tried looking them up but there's just so many.

    It's looks identical with the shape of its body to the pink one just not as big, this guy seemed to stop growing while the pink became huge over time. But I've been looking to I believe theyre both peacocks.

    The big one is an OB Peacock, which is a hybrid between a Peacock and an Mbuna, which tends to make them rather aggressive. The albino is likely also bred from the OB hybrid lines, as that was bred into them to enhance certain colors.
