Hello new friends!

Hello! I am new to this site, but we have had our cichlid tank for about a year now. It is a 55 gallon tank with 6 cichlids and one pleco. Not sure exactly what each type is, I know there is an albino and a peacock. I'm unsure if we have a female or not? This peach one we thought was a female but now unsure. Any help? Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome to Cichlidaholics, sorry about the late reply. The first picture of the orange fish looks like possibly a male Red Zebra. The second picture looks like a female Peacock Cichlid. The third pictures is possibly a female Red Zebra. I'm not sure on the fourth fish.

Thank you! The possible female red zebra has been very territorial and chases all the others around, while our albino is constantly in the corner hiding. With our tank size, do you think we should get more males?

More males might help but with male and females mixed in a tank there's usually trouble. I've got 3 or 4 female OB Peacocks in my 125 gallon aquarium with about 20 males and for the most part there's no fighting. They chase each other around but that's about it.
