Convict Cichlid Morph?

I saw this little girl at the pet store yesterday and I’m curious! She’s really pretty, but I’ve never seen one like her. Are her black splotches just a morph that I’ve never heard about? Sorry for bad pics, I was in a rush. I would have bought her if I wasn’t on vacation

There are a few Convict hybrid varieties being marketed now, but your pictured Convict looks just to have genetic pigment abnormalities. Sometimes that makes a cooler looking fish.

That is interesting. If she's healthy, I'd buy her. I miss my convicts.
That sounds kinda weird.

I miss my convict too tbh. They have such a great personality. I would go back and buy her but I’m sadly quite a ways from home with no way to keep her alive here.

She appears to have some Marble Convict gene, though it's expressing in an unusual manner.
