Kind of a Pirates of the Caribbean theme, I have a LOTR theme tank. I had African Cichlids and did not have much luck with having other fish with them except a pleco. I took in 8 adult cichlids as a rescue which after a short time I had to remove my other fish because they took over and started to have lots of fry.

Sweet! I’m going to enter my 10g probably. :)

As to the OP, I have no experience with African Cichlids. Ask @Byron.

My advice here would be minimal though significant. With African rift lake cichlids, only fish from the rift lake can be combined with them. But beyond this there is much to consider, and that I leave to the African cichlid experts here.

Looking good! What size tank and what is in there? I see a geo of some sort, a rainbow shark, and another cichlid that I can't ID.
Tank 1 I have a mix tetras, gourami, mollies, sucker fish and ghost widows.
Tank 2 cichlids and albino shark

What kind of cichlids? I can tell one is a geophagus of some sort, but the one on the right on the first picture I have absolutely no idea. There are many with various sizes and aggression. There is no way to know if a fish is compatible without knowing what kind of fish you have.

There are hundreds of african cichlids, all sizes, shapes, and aggression levels. It is very important to know what kind of african cichlid it is.

Can you post more pictures of that fish?
I will defo in the morning I am in bed xx

I don't think that is any sort of African cichlid. The body shape is more of something we'd see coming from America.
I think that's a jack Dempsey. He's extremely pale, but based on shape and some markings that'd be my guess.
