    They're all mbuna.

    The orange ones are called "red zebra", or Maylandia estherae https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maylandia_estherae
    The yellow and black ones look like "bumblebee cichlids", or Pseudotropheus crabro https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pseudotropheus_crabro
    I'm not 100% sure which species the blue ones are, but the solid powder blue coloured ones look like "cobalt cichlids" or Metriclima estherae https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php...ae&redirect=no Maybe some other members can provide greater insight on these.

    Here's a guide to keeping mbuna: https://www.practicalfishkeeping.co....survival-guide

    Here's a great (albiet old) documentary that will help you appreciate these species. Welcome to the world of African Cichlids! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVoZbo3fa54
