Beginner Cichlid tank

So I am setting up an african cichlid tank and I need some advice. Right now I have the sand and rocks set up and I just need to go get some cichlids. Here is what I am going for. Whenever I go to a fish store the tank that attracts me the most is the cichlid tank that has the yellow, blue, and orange cichlids all swimming together. I think it looks really cool and thats what I want. What kind of cichlids are these. I have scene these tanks at multiple pet stores so seems rather common

Probably some kind of Mbuna there quite common as there easy to bread.though there are a lot of cichlids that are orange, blue or yellow so you'll have to be more specific
