Can someone tell me which type of Cichlid the attached photo depicts, and also which other Cichilds would I be able to put in the same tank:confused:.

Welcome to the board, blackbird!

You have a male Maylandia lombardoi who has yet to show his full orange-ish adult color. To get better responses from members to the second part of your question, you might want to note tank specs, especially the size in area (more important than volume here).

Yep, definatley a Lombardoi... stick with aggressive Mbuna and I mean agressive. These guys love to fight!
