I'll take a stab at it. Female, OB (Blotch) cichlid. The two vertically striped fish next to the OB
are juvenile Peacocks. One is starting to color up. Until they age a little more probably won't be able to determine variety or sex.

Hi, thanks, I know the vertical stripped ones are peacocks and the orange ones are sunburst, not thinking the darker brownish ones are OB blotched. The photos aren't showing very well but depending on their mood they get quite dark and their top fins are reddish/orange in color.

Looks like a female OB. The peacock next to her in the last pic, Looks like a female peacock. Next time you take photos, use flash. The flash will reflect allot of color that we can't see for a while or until they "color up" Without flash the dominant male Hap and the Male OB Fry in the pic, looks like the others, drab. My adult females, darken the most, One freaked me out one day, she changed so much after releasing her fry, thought I had a new fish. She had warrior paint on lol. Mood swings will do that and males ready to mate. Click image for larger version
