    Is it possible for a convict to get lonely? I have a 2 inch male in a tank by himself and he honestly seems bored and lonely, Don't tell me I am anthropomorphizing, We all know animals have feelings to an extent. whether he is truly feeling " lonely" or just unfamiliar with not sharing his space with his own kind it really does not matter.

    Should I worry? Should I do anything?

    i do not believe that cichlids can be lonely the way we feel, but they can certainly be under stimulated.
    if your fish is a single fish in a sparse tank without any other animals, it could certainly be "bored".

    without Anthropomorphizing , fish need stimulus. So, if in a tank there is another fish that looks like them and a compatible specie , it makes them move around more, getting more exercise and helping them stay lively.

    Or I would just provide a big enough environment that is interesting and stimulating to the fish. A sandy substrate with rocks, roots, and pieces of driftwood will make your Convict feel at home.
