today I discovered that my 2 convicts have spawned. It wasnt a big surprise to me becuase about 2 weeks ago the dug a big hole in my stones and then the female (pink convict) turned really pinkish orange on the stomach and dorsal fin. about 3 days ago that pink color went away. And then today I noticed that they where chase the rest of the fish away from there side of the tank, I looked back there and there is a bunch of baby fry on the stones. Im kind of exited to see what color they turn out, becuase the female is a pink convict and the male is a black convict.

the female just moved all of the babies to the other side of the driftwood. IT scared me becuase I thought that she was eating them. Then I looked and I couldnt see any of them. So I started looking around and I found them all.

Great to see you back in action:19:, I had the same thing happen about a week ago with my convicts, but there is no sign of the eggs or anything now, but they are still guarding the spot.

The babies will most likely be black, but some may be pink or even calico.

Congratulations, it's alwasy exciting to see new bubs!! Just make sure the parents don't get overly aggressive and kill anything else in your tank off. But well done!!

Unless daddy has the pink gene in him, all your fry will be black.
