Will someone please help me I.D. these handsome cichlids?

Picked up two new Cichlids at the LFS yesterday for my self birthday present

There were labeled only as "African Cichlids" And the LFS employees were unable to elaborate on specific species. Help would be greatly appreciated!

Also, the 3rd fish pictured is a cichlid that I adopted from craigslist, he needs an I.D. as well. Thank you!

This first one has been EXTREMELY hard to get a good photo of as he/she is very shy! I apologize for the poor quality, it's the best I've been able to get so far.





And the second one:



And lastly the one I rescued from craigslist:

I managed to snap a couple more photos of this guy... hoping they show him a little better than the last ones and help confirm or deny him being Sciaenochromis Fryeri.

Don't know if thiss bit of info helps any but his eyes are the most intense gold flake color! I can always spot him by his eyes first, from any angle they shine.
