    Question Can you help me, are these Convicts or some other?

    I got these fish from my friend who couldn't keep them anymore, and she didn't know what these are. My guess is they are Convict Cichlids, but are they? (I'm sorry, my english isn't very good, I'm from Finland...)

    They look like young, albino convicts that have been dyed.

    Ok, thanks. They are normally all white, I think that's their spawning colour.

    Looks like a crossbreed of convicts and African cichlids. I saw something similar donated to my local LFS.

    I'm a little late to the discussion but those are just pink convicts. The one with all the orange is female. Female convicts get all sorts of orange and blues on them when they are ready to breed. Most certainly not an African hybrid. They don't appear to be dyed either.

    I've had pink convicts and that's exactly what they are like some others have mentioned no dye or anything. Pretty fish mean as hell though.
    Long time fish keeper most experience with CA/SA cichlids, natives like sunfish, and aggressive catfish.
    Currently have a 29g planted with 14 candy cane tetras, 6 sterbai corys, 6 melini corys, a rescued Siamese fighting fish and 1 mustache wearing albino longfin pleco.
