Are these Convict cichlids or Honduran Red Points?

I thought I had Convicts but now I'm not so sure. The colors on mine makes me suspect they might be HRP.

It's not possible to tell. They could have some HRP in them.

Saying a fish is a convict is like saying a fish is a peacock... could be any one of about 50 fish :)
