What kind of cichlid is this?

What kind of cichlid is this? I think he is awesome but he has bred with another cichlid but they are very different! Took this male in for a friend since she didn't want to just get rid of him. Two days later I notice my female isn't eating and isn't coming out of our hollow ship, then about a week later suprise ... there are tiny fry all over the place. They are about two months old now and I still have plenty of them left, about 30. Hopefully I can hook my LFS up with some fry but I don't know since I have no clue what kind of convict this is!
Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks in Advance!

***This is the mother and the father of my fry ... what type is she?

Two month old fry



Fry again ... I was so excited to see how well the pictures are!

Those are Convicts...not very nice fish but they look cool.

I had one and gave it back to my LFS cause he picked on everyone else.

edit: haha just saw that you already knew they were convicts....

Yeah I was wondering what type the male was since he is a little different than most that I have seen. I am wondering if he has been cross bred with something maybe???
