Fish ID at LFS

Hey guys I saw these fish and wanted to add them to my Malawi tank but I want to do the proper research. Can anyone ID them for me? The last one is a peacock I know but what kind if it has a specific name.

Thanks everyone.

3rd pic looks like a geophagus species but I'm bad at Africans on the others.

Pretty sure 1 and 2 are Victorians

3 appears to be a geophagus steindachneri or pelligrini

I could well be wrong on the kenyi id on the first, the facial stripes look a bit off. No idea on pic 2, do you agree with the sulphur head id? Looks solid to me, first pic I'm unsure on, similar but possibly different, do you know the species? I'm interested...

Definitely agree with the geophagus ID. I'm also just going to come out and say, probably don't shop at an LFS that puts african and SA cichlids in the same tank... Even the worst LFS in my area doesn't do that.

Ok Thanks everyone! Looks like the sulphurhead might fit into the tank but not the eartheater or the first one (the first two pictures were the same fish at different angles). My LFS is mostly salt water and he just has a few freshwater tanks. Could the eartheater fit in with angel fish? I've seen them with discus in some other tanks when I researched them.

I don't have experience with that particular geophagus but I've kept a bunch of them and none of them have been aggressive, so I think it would be ok as long as the tank was tall enough for the angelfish to have its own space.
