Welcome to 3reef
The dark one is a plecostomus, will need to see a side view for the other 2. They probably are cichlids.
+1 definitely plecostomus and I would think cichlids too.
i agree pleco and cichlids
From the top view that big one looks like a Managuense "Jaguar" Cichlid. If so they are beautiful, very smart fish. I had one for about 12 years.
Parachromis managuense - Jaguar Cichlid see if that looks like what you have.
Smaller one may be as well, can't see it well enough.
Ya, that looks like it, I need to rid of him, he's verry territorial, nipping on smaller fish. My lfs won't take him, any other ideas?
Nother thing, can I mix, cichlids with goldfish?
ive tried that lasted about two days cichlids are mean
nope, cichlids are tropical and most goldfish are coldwater.
To keep them happy and healthy, no. They have very different requirements concerning water temp and pH. Cichlids tend to be aggressive as well, which makes it difficult to find tankmates for them.
