how big are you convicts?

how many fry did your convicts have?

what size tank do you have them in?

well i only have 2 convicts left.. p's ate the other 3 i had..
the female is about 2.5 inches maybe 3 inches long.. the male is 2 inches max
i'd say there are about 30 or 40 fry in my 125 gallon tank.. i may put them in my feeder tank once they get a little bigger
they are huddled up by the filter right now.. hopefully they don't get sucked into it

the female convict is REALLY protective over them... if one of my rb's even looks at her from across the tank she goes ape sh*t
i only bought the convicts as a source of entertainment.. and a well spent 5 bucks it was

cool man.

i have 6 convicts in with my red bellies right now and im just waiting for them to get a lil bigger.

my reds have not killed any since i have put them in there (month or so), but some are missing some of their tail.

for raising fry I reccomend you use a filter that is powers from an air pump
