Fish ID please!

These fish need to be rehomed and I dont know what they are or what they get along with. They are in the same tank together with a green terror, pleco, yellow lab and a couple of texas cichlids. What are they? I am also looking for a possible value. Thank you, my knowledgeable AA friends!

#1
#2- Bumblebee (malawi)
#3- Neolamprologus Pulcher (tanganyika)... Possibly brichardi, though it looks too yellow IMO
#4

I'm horrible with south/central american cichlids, but I'd guess both 1 and 4 to be central american... Have you checked Species Profiles -- Cichlid-Forum by any chance yet?

Found it on your link. Looks like #1 is a Buttikoferi. Now trying to find out where it is from. By the way #4 is Green Severum. Thanks.

Buttokoferi is a Tilapia from Africa.

#1 +1 on tilapia buttikoferi
#2 is not a malawi, definitely a Tangynikan, just finding the correct one.
#3 +1 on Neolamprologus Pulcher

#2 Neolamprologus sexfasciatus (Gold)
Species Profiles -- Cichlid-Forum look at the second pic on the drop down menu.

I think tilapia buttikoferi is a riverine species.

You sure about that? I have 3 bumblebees and it looks identical.... the fish you linked has an 'arch' in it that this fish does not seem to have (nor do mine).

Maybe a better picture would give us means for a definitive answer?

Look at the second pic in the drop down menu as a comparison.

Compare the op's fish to a crabro.
The caudal peduncle is too narrow and elondate to be crabro.
http://www.aqualex.org/elearning/mer...-peduncle.html
The mouth structure is wrong for a Pseudotropheus.
Head shape and the way it joins the body at the dorsal fin is wrong for a mbuna too.
The body height at the dorsal fin to too great, look at the height of the body at the front of the dorsal and the back of the dorsal on both species.
The tail fin is distinctly round as opposed to crabro.
The bars are not joined along the side of the fish as it would be in a crabro.
This distinct lack of anal fin spots indicates it isn't a crabro.
The blue margin on the fin and tail are pretty distinct.

Here are more crabros to compare.
Malawi Dream - Pseudotropheus crabro
