There is one other that I have no idea what it is but he's pretty hard to catch with a cell phone cam.

Yr right but even with pics I have been wrong. There are many cichlids that looks a lot alike yet have different names. I guess the question is for a trained eye. Thanks for replying though.

Black and Blue looks like Johanni, but could be something else, need a different angle.

Black and white stripped Neolamprologus tretocephalus
Species Profiles -- Cichlid-Forum

Long yellow one
Possibly Neolamprologus leleupi
Species Profiles -- Cichlid-Forum
or Neolamprologus mustax
Species Profiles -- Cichlid-Forum

I think it is leleupi though.

The grey one is Neolamprologus brichardi
Species Profiles -- Cichlid-Forum

Have a browse through this list for your last 3 fish.
Species Profiles -- Cichlid-Forum

1st fish is definitely a Malawi and a Melanochromis species.
