    There are marbled convicts. Hondorian redpoints are very similer to convicts. There are also a lot of hybrids convicts like the jellybean parrot.

    I've heard of Blue Convicts but I think they're a type of hybrid. I think it's a mix of Houndrus Red Points and Convicts.

    There are only two types of Convict Cichlid (Archocentrus nigrofasciatus) - regular and albino.

    "Blue Convict" is actually a different fish and not a hybrid that kind of looks like a regular Convict Cichlid, "Blue Convict" is Archocentrus sp.. Check out http://www.gcca.net/fom/Archocentrus_sp_Honduran-Red-Point.htm for more information.

    Not a convict, it's an African cichlid that's not even related.
