The first pic is not a hap obliquidens. the large vertical bars are not present and the coloration is off. It could be a Hap sp. 44 "red Tail" juvi. hard to tell since it is still young but that is what I am leaning towards.

The second one I have no clue.

The third one is close to a kyoga. The tail needs to be more green than yellow, but the body shape is right. The pattern is also good but it suggests the fish is stressed which could be why the color is off.

The first picture is not a Haplochromis obliquiden or a hap 44. I don't know if it is a H.brownae, I have never seen one in person.

The second one I have no ideal what it is. It most likely a hybrid.

I have seen kyago flamebacks, and that one has some of the markings of a kyago flameback. The color is off, like Dre said where is the green. I have seen Allens breeding kyago flamebacks, and the color is way different the the one in the picture.
