What kind of cichlids are these

Hobbyist

In the photos below are some cichlids I saw in the store , I assume they are some type of dwarf cichlids, does anyone have any idea about those cichlids? Like what tank size is suitable for them and how big they get

Not dwarves. Various types of africans though.

Those are baby African cichlids. I would say at least 40 gallons or larger. They are not the easiest fish to care for due to aggression and specific water parameters so they are usually recommended for more advanced caretakers.

Demasoni and auratus in there i think, all juveniles.

Those are also the ones I can identify, there are some yellow-orange ones that could also be Aulonocara or Metriaclima fry.

Oh, and tank size for fully grown is 350l and more, so a 40 is by no means enough.
