I just think i'll stick with Convicts Cichlids. I like them, and I like their personality (I watched some on youtube)

Good choice! I MIGHT buy another tank so i can put the best looking female (because of the cool orange blotch) from the first 3-5 batches and keep them in it. The rest of the fry after that will become feeders, lol. There i not much to do with convict fry.

I'll have to flush fry when they become fishs... I wish parents will eat them, so I won't have anything to do with this -.-


That's a future project. I already owned a high tech tank heavy planted with smalls fishs. I want to expand with a low tech with bigger fishs.

If I could undo, I would have bought a 75 gal tank with a huge monster, but now I only have space for 30 gal wide + 30 gal tall.

Hybridization occurs when 2 different species produce offspring. The pink convict is a color variant of the regular convict- same species, thus, this is not hybridization.

Please don't- this is incredibly cruel. If you are not prepared to deal with a LOT of fry, then I would strongly suggest you do not purchase a pair of convicts. Many pet stores won't even take them off your hands for free, so I really don't get the appeal personally. There are lots of SA/CA cichlids that are just as interesting in terms of personality and behavior that will not overrun you with fry. Or, if you aren't interested in fry, why keep a pair in the first place? You could probably keep a single convict and a single firemouth in a 29 (scratch the pleco, though), and there are other less common species that would work too- some members of the genus Cryptoheros are a good example.
