Yeah, the little cons will be fine. The parents will do a good job of raising them and even protecting them from the other fish in the tank. I'd say the other fish have a chance of eating them but like Trigga said in a week the cons will be up to it again. I'd say they are the rabbits of the fish world.

yes! convicts make excellent parents, con babies will often disappear due to other fish eating them but rarely will a parent convicts ever consume its own fry. they will amaze you how well they parent. and the baby convicts will grow quite fast in a suitable tank with a good diet.
