What is this fish called?

Hi

I live in Hong Kong and just recently bought this fish but not sure what it's called. Can anyone help?

Would like to know more about this type of fish.

Thanks

Looks almost like a blood parrot, but I'm not 100% sure

I THINK it might be a pink convict or a "jellybean". I could be wrong though

"Jellybean" is the shape. Kind of like balloon mollies. But I have purchased pink convicts shaped like the op's fish. I guess from what I was reading after my response earlier, there's still question as to where jellybeans come from. Some say pc, others say hybrid. But unlike blood parrots, jellies can breed.

Thanks for the replies. I've tried googling all the names but none of them seem to match this fish...

In the shops they call it "Gold marble" (Translated from Chinese).

Pink Convict seems to have a longer body but this is more yellow and rounded...

I've tried a few websites but can't seem to find any info on them.

if you could get a better clearer side shot it could help in identifying a little better

Its a hybrid of something for sure. My guess would be a blood parrot variant but in my opinion it is too young to be able to say for sure.
