Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      You can't tell if a convict is a hybrid because of pictures I was wondering if there most likely a hybrid or pure convicts

      It just concerns me because red points and cons are closely relates like Midas and red devils so u really don't know what what is I'm just wondering if I should assume hybridization has occurred like a midevil so if it was a con x red point = red con :D

      Right, in that case you can't tell. Technically you can't tell with any fish you get, unless you catch it yourself from the wild, and even then you may end up with a hybrid someone released or the odd natural hybrid.

      HRP's look nothing like the Convict. The Convict is blk/gry striped, an HRP is Blue with some black barring(not always) w/red fins. Google HRP and you will see exactly what an HRP looks like, and you will see that they look nothing like the Convict. They are even shaped differently.

      hrps are convicts . the only real differnce is the region they come from and how they look. Amatitlania nigrofasciata and Amatitlania cf. siquia . also they are like midevils most people cross breed the two with out even knowing the difference

      Amatitlania nigrofasciata and Amatitlania cf. siquia infers that they are different species... Convict refers to A. nigrofasciata specifically, A. cf. siquia refers to HRP specifically... in the future someone might come along and find that A. cf. siquia is actually just a variaty of A. nigrofasciata, but until then they're separate species.
