I caught some fish on oahu, Hawaii and I’m not sure if they are convict cichlid or tilapia.

Hi and welcome to the forum :)

Can you provide some pictures of the fish in the water?

I have never seen albino or white tilapia but there are white convict cichlids. However, white convict cichlids don't normally have red fins. They could be a species of Tilapia but not the common Mozambique. They don't quite look like convicts either.

Grow them up a bit and see what they look like in a few months time. If they are still small then it's less of an issue. If they get bigger they will be a major issue in the water ways.

I'd guess the bottom one to be a convict. The top one, I haven't a clue.

They are five different fish, but I’m pretty sure the bottom three are convicts. Thank you for your help.
