Can I Put A Female Convict In The Tank With My Female Krib
Hey i was wondering if i could keep a convict with my krib because my dads convicts were getting ready to lay eggs again and if the fry survived like the last batch his tank would be heavily over stocked. i have a 20 gallon or could i just keep her til i find a home for her

A single female convict should be safe enough to mix with a krib in a 20.
One of the worst things about convicts is their reproduction rate coupled with the low (or no) demand for them, and the difficulty in finding anything that will eat excess convict fry. A raphael catfish or bumblebee may help with that, they're strictly nocturnal and will snatch fry while the parents are sleeping.
