He's a walmart rescue I guess you could say. Got him for $1.76! Right now he is in my 20 gal quarantine tank and I'm not sure I'll even end up putting him in my other tank, giving him to my mom(who has a 55 gallon), or giving him to my LFS. I just wanted to get him out of the deplorable walmart conditions. He was in a tank full of fancy guppies lol. Anyway, he is a pinkish color and has no markings...what do you think he is?

Definitly looks like a pink convict, and looks like possibly a female, think can see the start of some orange on the belly, probably still too young to tell for sure. For yours and your moms tank may or may not work depending on what is in there. They are pretty aggressive, especially when spawning. You can check out their profile in the cichlid section of the profiles. The link can be found at the top of the page second tab from the left.
