Deeda is right. That is an Electric Blue Acara, (EBA) a hybrid Cichlid consisting of an Andinoacara pulcher, (Blue Acara), mixed genetically with Mikrogeophagus ramirezi, (German Blue Ram). And yes, sometimes first time spawning Cichlids can do all sorts of weird things, until they figure things out. Has your EBA spawned with what looks like a Convict Cichlid, next to it?
That was not a convict, but the female.

Thanks for everyone who replied. I now feel good knowing what I have. For what its worth, I do not think these are hybrids, they look too much like acaras (which I have had before, but a long time ago) and not rams, which as someone pointed out are in a different genus. Also, other electric blue cichlids do occur, like Jack Dempseys, so maybe electric blue is a common variant, just like the golden varieties. Just my two cents.
