    I have some cichlids from Guatemala. Can you help me to identify them?

    45 gal aquarium will be enough for them? They are compatible with the plants? Any particular advises?

    Look like convicts to me. I see three of them from the looks of things, so the answer to the stocking part of your question is no. Eventually they'll start fighting over territory (probably sooner rather than later if they haven't already) and if you have a female in that group it will make matters worse. A single pair in that tank is really pushing things, and having an odd man out in there will cause long term problems for all of them. Cichlid parental behavior is an amazing thing to see as they are fiercly protective of their young but is a nightmare (and sometimes fatal) for anything else in the tank with them. I would sex them and watch to see if any pairing is occuring then remove the third wheel from the situation. That will keep things relatively peacefull for now and when you're able , upgrade them to a bigger tank.
    Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.

    If everyone is thinking alike , then no one is thinking.
