If its a male, and you have for sure females, he will pair up with one and they will terrorize the other. They will pair up on their own pretty quick. When he picks one take the others out so they don't get beat up. Convicts are fantastic parents that don't allow ANY other tank mates

I have black, pink and marbled convicts, and mine all act the same. They spawn at the same times, all six pair. Once they start I promise they'll never stop
