#1 is a yellow tail acei (Pseudotropheus sp. acei 'Msuli'). When compared to other mbuna's they're on the peaceful side. They max out at 5"-6".
#2 & #3: possible Metriaclima msobo. The specimen in pic #2 either hasn't fully transitioned or is displaying sub-dominant coloration. The possible msobo in pic #3 could also be male melanochromis interruptus or cousin species (m. johanni or m. cyaneorhabdos). The melanochromis species are more torpedo shaped than the stockier msobo's. From the angle I am not 100% certain.
For comparison here is a photo of one my msobos:
