A convict really isn't a good mix with minnows and platys. should be at least a 40 breeder 36"x18" or a 4ft tank.

I know those are not the most ideal tank mates but I jus need to no if you think I should rush too move her or will she be OK for a week or two while I get a new tank set up for her

Honestly only she knows. These cichlids have their own personality. I have had one central go bezerk after 5 months of no problem and kill an entire tank.
