What kind of cichlids?

I bought these from my lfs and it said on the tank South American cichlids. I was wondering if anyone knows the actually name for each of these guys?

The pet store sold me the salvini as a pair they seem very timid so far. They just hind behind the heater with my pleco. Maybe they're just getting used to the new tank

1st is a salvini, 2nd looks like a heckelli, and the third looks like a red aureum.

Salvini is a aggressive fish

Never mind the salvini's seem very aggressive now that they've gotten comfortable

They're beautiful fish but super aggressive if given the opportunity. I've only had them successfully w other fish if they've been Midas or Red Devils. Maybe with the right Dempsey or green terror but not likely. They usually do take a shy approach at first BUT.... when they decide they want to mix it up it usually gets crazy. Theyre fast and strong and when they realize it - its nuts. May need jaguars with them but the tank would need to be much larger. Good luck though!
