You'll probably get a better answer in the Cichlid forum.

My guesses are
1. Nimbochromis Haplochromis Venustus or Haplochromis Livingstoni
2. electric blue or demasoni, maybe kenyi?

Just going by some Google images though; I could be way off lol

Not sure the second one.

First one looks like Livingstonii although it is a little on the light side of coloration.
