i would need a larger picture to confirm its a M. Auratus, M. Chipokae and M. Auratus look almost the same, if you can, try to get a pic of the tail, thats the easiest way for me to tell

just a warning if it is a M. Auratus, they are extremely aggressive when adults. I have to keep mine solitary in a 10g because he will kill any other living thing in the tank

The yellow one is a "Yellow Lab". Very commonly kept fish. The pink one looks like a pink convict, but I am not 100% on that.

Hmm, guess I shoulda read that you already knew the two I did. Hehe, sorry.

my last one is the convict pretty sure she is a girl...I am very interested in what the 3rd one is we just call him the old man cause he reminds me of my dad hangin out in his cave and chasing anything that goes by lol. I have been trying all day to get better pics of them but i am working with my camera phone so it is hard

From what I can see of the fish in the 1,2, and 4 pics I would say melanochromis auratus. The tail markings do not look like they extend to the lower part of the fin, if they do extend then it's melanochromis chipokae.
