Color ID

I'm a newbie to cichlids. I have 19 of them in a 29 gal. I've done plenty of research but can't find anything on what their colors are called. Theyre all africans:
5x blue with vertical grey/black stripes
3x solid blue
1x albino
2x yellow
1x black
2x orange
1x jewel
2x black/yellow/white horizontal stripes

I've been told that the ones with horizontal stripes have the juvenile or female coloring. I'm thoroughly confused.

Your going to need a bigger tank. And can you take pictures? The Blck/yellow horizontal stripe fish is more likely an Auratus. I have one.

From what I saw you have red zebras (solid orange) Jeweled (redish with dot) solid blues look like like cobalts. The blue striped look like, kenyi maybe socolifi, yellow with black on fins yellow labs, horizontal striped ones are golden cichlids
