You could ask a question here. I just don't know much about cichlids lol. Another member will chime in.

Or you could start a thread in the freshwater and brackish category.

Hiya! Welcome to AA! The main issue with your stock is you have a mixture of South American and African Cichlids, both require different ph and different dietary needs. The Convicts and Dempseys are SA cichlids the others are Malawi. It is also not recommended to mix Peacocks with Mbuna but it is not unheard of, I have a Peacock with mine. I'm not sure what the one with the bump on its head may be, possibly Blood Parrot or Flowerhorn? The yellow one you described is a yellow lab
