well. just got some news that i cant keep my convicts n the 29g forever because my dad wants nicer looking fish because the tank is in the living room. so im going to end up putting them in my 38g and taking the fish from there and puttin them in the 29. then when i eventually want a nicer tank with more fish i'll give them to the pet store and probably get the next step easy chichlids to breed and put them in the 38g. sound good?

Pair. If you get a trio the single one that doesn't get paired off will get killed.

Just to add this in here even though we are done dicussing the size of tank, I read this on a website.

The minimum tank size for a pair of Convicts is 30 gallons/114 litres, although they will be more comfortable in a tank of 40 gallons/152 litres or more.

So yes they can be put into a 30G tank as a pair, but happier in a bigger tank.

Anyways we are done discussing this so yeah, lets see those single shots so we can get male and female sexed.
