Not always, but typically, they will breed. However, convicts are very aggressive spawners and anything else in the tank will be chased into a corner and stressed to the point of death quite often. Not to mention that convicts are like rabbits. They are extremely prolific, and due to this fact, plus the fact of how common they are, getting rid of the fry can be a headache. I've seen people unable to even give them away. They're often used as feeder fish for larger cichlid/predatory fish
