New cichlid owner help!!!!

HI Iím new to this forum and to keeping cichlids. I was given this tank because the person who had it couldnít take it due to moving. The first 4 fish are peacocks and seem to not move from the top of the tank. The second I donít know what it is. Itís grayish/blue he keeps chasing all the other fish. And lastly the smallest has his tail all torn up and wonít come out from behind the intake, if he does the grey fish attacks him. From what I was told this is a fairly new tank. They got the grayish/blue fish two weeks ago and all other fish are from 2 days ago. Due to unfortunate events they gave me the tank today. Can anyone help me?

Do you have a divider or something to split up the tank?
