Hey guys, i ordered a few black convicts from liveaquaria a while back, as they matured both developed orange on the sides so I assumed they were female, well one day I noticed one of them was starting to pick up some odd coloration I've never had on a convict, especially not a female. Well now its changed even more and is bigger than any female convict I've had. She's now lost almost all light coloration, her white areas are now dark, and the black stripes have turned red/orange. Developing blue on lower Gill plate. The pictures don't do total justice but I was wondering if anyone knew wtf this is? Some people on Facebook said Honduran red point but it doesnt look like any I've ever seen

Very pretty fish, will be impossible to tell you exactly what the cross Is if it is a hybrid), HRPx con does sound plausible. Personally, I think it is just a unique looking convict.
