Why do you want to breed convicts only to feed them to another fish. Why them?

What does this mean "as he gets bigger tank siZe temp?"

why is a waste? my lfs wont even take or sell convicts. since they are a fast and stable breeder i dont see a problem with it. i cant get guppies to breed so i got platys and mollies. i never have to worry about being over populated cause my angels eat them right away.
