Those are called 'Pink' Convict Cichlids.https://www.google.com/search?q=pin...X7lXIEHdsoBhAQ_AUoAXoECAwQAw&biw=1920&bih=937
They are a leucistic or semi-albino form of the regular Convict Cichlid . Since they have a dark eye, rather then a pink colored eye, some consider them to be not true or fully albino.

By the way, in your second picture, many of your Pink convicts are skimming the surface to get more air. There is a lack of oxygen in your tank for the number of fish. An air pump with an air stone could be an immediate remedy for the situation, or aiming the return of your filter at the very top of the water to cause more water agitation at the surface.

Thanks! These are not actually my fish. Someone wants to give them to me but didn't now what they were. *** never had Cichlids so I'm trying to learn as much about them as I can before I say yes.
