Size for size the convicts are badder at that size. But put a 4 inch convict up against a 4 inch spilo.. or some RBs and see who gets punked.

4 RBs adding 3 more..

Trust me.. a shoal, even when babies can sometime be moredangerous than going toe to toe with 1 P in equal size. These guys might back down now.. but remember, they're good at ambushing prey. I wouldnt doubt if they attacked your Cons even at this early age.

my convicts ruled my reds even when they were half the size of the reds, once cariba went into the tank, the convicts aggression wasnt tolerated, the cariba 1st ripped both of their mouth's off, then ate them completely a month later

my convicts lasted nearly a year with the reds though

Anytime you have a direct introduction of a new specie, be it a pirana or feeder, that new fish will easier be the aggessor or the food.

Since a separate distinctive species was introduced to an established tank, naturally the fish that looks less like a pirana will be eaten. Simple semantics.

oh, I didnt mention, I had the reds and cons in a 30g, and the 3 cariba in a 40g

then one day moved them all to a 125g once it cycled so I dont know how that effected things

i guess i always figured they would get eaten just never though it would happen. was very shocked becasue they only nipped them once or twice. but they are good tank mates they usualy help clean up too.
