Welcome to APC!

I'm not sure what the plant is, but it does look like a sword plant, one of the echinodorus species. The green and white plant at the left is likely to be a terrestrial plant, which will soon die. And, the one on the right is another echinodorus species. Many people here are better qualified to identify plants, so don't rely on my comments.

Hi.
Hoppycalif`s right, those are Ehinodorus plants. Problem is, most of this plants offered for trade are hybrids. Also, it looks like you put those plants in aquarium very recently and its unknown, submerged or emergent form they are. Big mama in the center could be Ehinodorus uruguaensis or E. grisebachii. Check the stalks, if they are triangular- this is Grisebachii. Smaller plant at the right definitely Amazon sword plant- Ehinodorus amazonicus (blehery). Hoppycalif`s right again, plant at the left is terrestrial. This is Dracaena- relative to the lucky bamboo. In addition, I`d like to note, that keep together Malawi cichlids and plants is a bad idea. All of these plants will become a good food source to your fish very soon.
