Cichlid ID Help ?

I have a few cichlid's with no Scientific Names. If you know what they are please reply.
I got these today for my 220 gallon tank. It's amazing that the store had no idea. But they were cool to watch.

I'm not sure other than they look like Malawi Cichlids.
If you go to. www.tropicalfish-scotland.com , they have more pictures to compare to than any website I've seen. They have 79 Malawi Cichlids alone. You know what colors match yours better than anyone. Check it out and see if you can find your fish. I saw a couple that were close, but I wasn't positive.
