Baby Convict Cichlids

Postby NickNickNick » Fri Jun 08, 2018 11:08 pm

So I have a bunch (maybe 30-40) baby convict cichlids all around 2 months old and about the half the size of an American dime. Does anyone know what I can do with them? I only have a ten gallon tank so I definitely can't house them all and they're at a size where they're attempting to kill the female that I have in the tank. Any advice helps, thanks in advance!

Well you can contact a lfs or local aquarium society to see if there is any interest, but convicts probably aren't going to be easy to rehome in quantity.

Possibly give them to LFS or give to someone with something large and can use them as feeders. That's about it though, they're the rabbits of the cichlid world so they aren't easy to get rid of

They are pretty much worthless at that size. I would use them as feeders.
