Help with new tank

Help please! I just started taking care of a 90 gallon tank because the owner is no longer able to. This tank was just recently started and based on what I've been reading I believe that some of the fish that are currently in it should not be tank mates. Here is a list of the fish currently in the tank >

Yellow Labidochromis - 2
Moori Firecracker - 1
Electric Blue Johanni - 2
Flavescent Peacock Cichlid - 2 males
Apache Peacock - 2 males
Lemon Jake Peacock - 2 males & 1 Female

I think they are all male except for the female lemon. Do I need to separate some of these or will they be OK?

Hello and welcome!

Although I will not be of much help with the fish stocking, I have a great resource for you to learn some solid information on making sure the tank is going to be cycled and safe for your fish when the stocking gets figured out.

Likewise I know almost nothing about cichlids but until someone who does comes along have you tried plugging the stocking into aqadvisor? That calculator has its flaws but it can give you some good warnings of fish that may not go well together or need certain conditions.
