The third picture looks like a cichlid.. The fourth picture looks like it has a goldfish in the background....

Are they in the same tank?

The third picture is a yellow prince. It started hyperactive and now all other fishes are hating it; they bite it in the tail.

A yellow prince cichlid?? (Never heard of them; just googled it, and it came up as a cichlid)..

Cichids and goldfish are NOT compatible in any way, shape, or form. One will die.

Goldfish are cold water fish - heaters will kill them.

Cichlids are warmer water fish - no heat will kill them.

What else do you have in that tank?

Nope. Actually, many goldfish are bred in heated tanks. Remember, goldfish have been bred for centuries. They are quite well adapted to every water condition imaginable. Sure we like to say that they need 72F water but that's impossible. Outdoor ponds are known to climb to 80F and my own pond gets to 84 in the texas heat.

And yes, my koi AND goldfish have spawned for me before.

It's a misconception people have to say "coldwater" means they die in warm water. It may be true for things like balitorids but certainly not goldfish.

Additonally goldfish prefer harder water as well 8-8.4ph so I would say a goldfish is a great tank mate for peaceful cichlids in a very very large tank.
