I was at the pet store and saw these things called polar convict cichlids. I like them and the guy recommended them. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about these fish. Thanks

balloon convict cichlids. don't touch them, they have problems due to their organs being squished up. the same thing with all balloon fish (balloon mollies, oranda and pearlscale goldfish, etc).

Colin is right on the mark. The only way to stop this inhumane practice of "balloon" fish is to not ever buy them.

I thought they were a cross breed between blood parrots and convicts
