Convicts and socolofi are from different cichlid sub-families, I seriously doubt that the description (offspring of male convict & female socolofi) is indeed fact.African cichlid and saltwater aquariums

Unless they are talking about some Lake Malawi cichlid that is called a convict in his area. Remember that common names are never official.Owner: Aquarium Maintenance and Pet Care Company

I agree with the kaybee and fishguy2727. The seller is either mistaken on which fish impregnated the female socolofi , or is applying the common name of "convict" to one of the vertically barred Malawi species.“The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.”
