    Convicts can have many different colors in their fins. :) Mine has orange, blue, and green!

    Convicts are actually Central American. Perhaps the seller is referring to a Jewel Cichlid. They are African but pretty much the same in terms of care and temperament.

    What are they charging? I paid about $3 for my convict. Just wondering if they are trying to call it an African to jack up the price.
