    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.
