No, they look like standard cons to me. I had some of the first off-spring from the original pair collected by Rusty Wessell, and the color is far off. Real red points really don't have much red. They have much more blue and green hues in the fins and the body and chest. The only red is some cherry colored scales on the belly area.

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

First Pic looks to me to be a Texas x Convict - Look at the spot in the middle, not a true male, the rest look like cons, but I have many and not one has the "texas" spot......

Comments??

If you want to get rid of them please try the cichlid classifieds.

You could try to sell/give them to a LFS, but I don't believe that you will get much being as convicts are a dime a dozen.

Give them to a large CA/SA breeder as feeders.

I really know nuttin but in pic 3 the pink ones might be pink convicts unless they have red eyes.

Pink convicts a.k.a. Pink Congos. I have 6 of them. From what I can tell 1 female, 5 males. As they mature a little more maybe I will know better.

Fish? What are "Fish"?

Yep, a convict. Formerly Archocentrus/Cryptoheros nigrofasciatus, but they have recently been changed to the new genus of Amatitlania as Dave stated.
