Convicts!!

I got a breeding pair of convicts a few nights ago.Convict cichlids are some of my favorite fish,they have such personality.These two guys (one girly,one boy) always rush to the tank if I go near it.


I will get pics and maybe a video soon!

Are you going to keep the babies if they breed?

I will probably sell them or give them away.
Convicts are good parents and breed readily,so I don't wanna be ovverrun.Plus they are aggressive and it wouldn't be good if the tank became overcrowded!

haha they do breed pretty well!
at The Reef (where i work) we had a pair that had babies in the store, then we had some guy bring us 50 convict babies in a Pickle Jar! He just handed them to my boss and walked out. Then came back later wanting his jar back. she was like...What the heck am i supposed to do with all these!? So..... weve had about 50 convicts now for over a month, still trying to sell them! they are super tiny and cute though!
Good luck with them! They are awesome fish!

Thanks.


Thats funny about the babies.
I see alot of ads around here,people giving convicts away for free! If mine start breeding like that,then I will probably just give them away too.
