    I have a small pair of Convicts (about 2" each) with a 4" Jack Dempsey in my 40 gallon breeder. The convicts are in the process of breeding right now and they will go after the Dempsey when he gets too close to their nest, but he can stick up for himself. Most of the time he just hang out on the opposite end of the tank. I also have 8 Giant Danios and the Convicts just ignore those guys.

    I decided not to go with the convicts? But I occasionally give them water changes when I'm over the house. Would it do them harm if I started conditioning the water? They have been living in tap water for more than a year. I want to see better colors in them. I switched they're goldfish flakes to hbh cichlid pellets but I didn't see any positive changes in their appearance.

    Not a very big tank for 2-6" fish, IMO.

    for a pair of cons a 40 long is perfect!! you could keep a school of large tiger barbs or rio grande tetras.. giant daniels seem to be the best choice of a dither fish for most hobbiest. but go with hikari gold cichlid pellets and condition the water. also the darker the substrate will allow the con to color up to the substrate. it helps alot.

    ive bred these before and they dont stop, you have to watch out after the fist batch increase water changes tenfold, when the parents are ready to breed again i found the old batch will disapear.
    i used a plant pot about the size of a hand broken into 3 pieces and they loved them for eggs .
    you also have to be careful if u have plecs if breeding my convicts will even stand up to my red devil who is 20 times their size good luck ..............may the force be with you lol

    Actually i believe convicts get 4-5" But if they do get 6", they still have 30" of tank to swim so thats about 4 1/2 X's the fish size, and its wide enough for them to turn around, and plenty tall enough. 2 in a 20 Long is perfectly fine.
