Hmmm wonder if this is true ...

I just read that if you try to breed convict cichlids in a bare bottom tank, that they'll either end up injuring themselves or killing each other

Is this information accurate ?

Thanks in advance!

Heck, Convicts bred for me at the Petstore in the sales tank with kids banging on the glass !! They'd have the rest of the fish shoved to one side, but they were guarding fry. The Guppies of the Cichlid World LOL ( but even easier ).
