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?

Agreed, two EBAs.
Be interesting to know what is actually in the EBA, That Cichlid is not found in the wild. Sources all over the internet claim its a BA/GBR mix kind of thing. Makes more sense it would be the product of some line-breeding. But, if that was the case where are the so-called 'normals' (BA) that should emerge as a percentage of the spawning brood?
And, with all of the gene-splicing/editing things they can do today< I wouldn't be too surprised if the EBA was orignally born out of lab somewhere....
