    Hello,
    Does anyone have experiance in growing convict cichlids? I got a breeding pair on Saturday, there in a 30 gallon fish tank alone with no other fish. I put 2 caves in their tank for them to lay eggs in. Can anyone give me suggestions on growing them? Thanks in advance

    With convicts, you don't have to do anything. They are increadably easy to breed.

    Just make sure you give them something to direct thier aggression towards while they are breeding and are with fry.
    Rainbow Fish work great with Convicts.
    Peace

    Aww, convicts. I love these guys. I use to breed them, had hundreds of babies. Couldn't give them away fast enough.

After the deed is done, you can remove the male, he's not needed after that. 30 gallons is a bit big for 1 pair of convicts. 10 gallons would suffice.

    convicts will breed in a cup of water. I like to call them water rodents. Great fish though.
