A group of female convicts
About two months ago I bought five really young convicts from a giant group of juvies at my lfs. My goal was to get a breeding pair. It hasn't happened yet. Head to tail they are three inches, but nothing. They live relatively peacefully together. I was planning on running the other three back, but nothing yet.
Two of them are the normal color, and the other three are the albino/pink variation. The two normal ones are obviously female due to all the pink coloration on their underbellies. I don't know how to sex the other three.
If by freak, improbable chance I ended up without a male, what is the end result going to be here? Will five female convicts live together in only a 29g? It doesn't seem like enough room for them to live without fighting.

Males have no orange on their stomachs!
Most of the time!If you have no males there will be no fry.
If a female does lay eggs its going to ugly in that tank.
