Also they're West African Cichlids, not your typical African cichlids, they like different water parameters.

They like a neutral around 7.0 ph and can be very aggressive when spawning, which if there is a male and a female they probably will. They do best with hardy fish, preferably from there area... Such as Congo Tetras.

Never had convicts but I'd say the Kribs are less aggressive but it really depends on the situation. Kribs are generally peaceful but when spawning they are maniacs
