identify please

I have two of these in with my convicts. They don't look like the others though. This one in these pics, its mean to all the other fish. I thought it might be protecting eggs or babies but there are none in the tank and its not really protecting any certain area.

I looked that up and mine really don't look that pretty. The stripes on mine aren't real dark. Yes, I have a lot of convicts. I have around 40+ in a 30gal, very overstocked. I have gotten rid of a lot and need to get rid of more.

I looked up parrot cichlids and I don't think these are the same. I'll try to get a better pic and post it for you.

If you don't have success here you can try posting it on cichlids.com. They are really good at id-ing fish.
