Recommended Posts

Top one is Nimbochromis Venustus

Fourth one is a Crimson Tide Male (Astatotilapia latifasciata)

Fifth one is a Johanni or Maingano (never could tell the difference)

Seventh one looks like Aulonocara Jacobfreibergi

Thats all I can help with

My list is pretty similar to Chris's, the Aulonacara Fort Maguire sure does look a lot like Aulonacara Ngara, out of interest sevieri are they all getting along in the same tank?

You have some beautiful fish there, love the Lat Crimson Tide.

Wouldn't worry too much about co-existences too much, especially if you overstock your tank... although I have seem to find minimal agression to conspecific species with agression between some males; this is one of the species however that I do not have many females for which also plays a role in overall agression.
