Looks a little like some of the Convict/Honduran Red Point hybrids i've seen

Not normally but some of the hrt's can have a little olive color to them. Could be other species involved too. Convicts will breed with almost anything lol

Just a regular con or con X HRP.
The pic in the tank doesn't show much yellow coloration at all. It's redish fins not so unusual for a male con.
I don't think pics while still scared in the bag say too much about the 'regular' color of a fish. It's just a bit of yellowish color; not outside the range of variation for either cons or HRP.
