2 convicts.

Okay so i got what i think is a male and female, will they pair up because so far they are just playing tag and who can hide better. The female is a tad smaller then the mall, i have a log for them to hide in. Should i add a clay pot or what? any tips?

Are they in water? If so you'll be fine as they'll breed in a dirty toilet...

The only problem I've ever had with convicts was getting them not to breed.

How long until the breeding starts? They have been in the tank for about 8 hours and im hoping to at least get eggs by the new year....

What do you plan on doing with all the fry? No offense but people can't give them away and you'll soon be overrun. I wouldn't bother unless I had a means to dispose or plans to cull them.

First be sure you have a male and female and not two different size males. Does one have orange on it? If so that is the female. I agree with the others. They breed non stop and you cant get rid of the fry.
