Found those at a fish store, the guy did not know what cichlids they are. Can anyone identify these?

I am useless at identifying cichlids unfortunately. What I would do if I was you is go to Google images and enter in the URL, that will then search the entire Internet looking for anything the same, or similar, you should be able to find what you are looking for

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Looks like some kind of african cichlid to me, but not really my forte.

as Rocksor said, however, those africans are clearly not feeling their best, they should be way more colored. the first one in particular has stress colors.

thanks. These are not mine, they are on sale at one of the fish stores. I kinda like the way they look. apparently they do not grow that much big, do they?
If I somehow am able to give away my two parrots maybe I would get a pair of them.

My parrots are nice though, but they are most of the time not visible...

If your blood parrots are hiding, then there is something wrong with the environment. Something is stressing them out. Blood parrots are much more personable than most African cichlids.
