Need help figuring out what fish I have!

Soo.. a bit about me, I have five tank and in my biggest tank 55g I have cichlids. I started the tank over a yesr ago and I had about 16 fish in it. Over the year i went down to 5 fish! Today, I gave a lady my biggest meany in the tank, my big orange blotch zebra and she gave me ten fish. She never told me the names other then a convict? I know two are electric yellow labs but no idea on the others. The big guys look like a peacock of something. My stock before i was given these fish was ob zebra, cobalt blue, electric yellow, and strawberry peacock. They also range from 5 " to 1 inch. Thanks!!

Please help. How will all these fish get along? What can I add to it? My cobalt, electric yellow and orange blotch might have to go as they are now picking on the new guys

Not sure about the Africans but the bottom 3 pics are Convicts. They are not a good mix.

I agree, not a good mix,eventually the peacock will kill the others because of territory ,would be fine w other Africans even pictus cats would be ok. Good luck

It definitely won't be the peacock doing the killing, more than likely it will be one of the convicts. You also might want to research a bit more before posting advice like this, every fish in that tank aside from the cons are African.

So far my only problem fish is the striped cichlid that is yellow and blue. The big convict is mot mean at all actually. I was given these fish by a girl and she took my two obs, cobalt, and electric yellow. They were the worst fish in that tank. The peacocks are the gentlest cichlid I have come across so far. What should I add to the tank do you think? I really want a dwarf parrot haha
