question about convict breeding pair

Postby Apolly » Tue Sep 17, 2019 6:11 am

so i have a pair of convicts that just started trying to spawn and they are in a 6' tank with larger adult cichlids.they seem to hold their own pretty well and the other cichlids dont bother them despite being so much larger.do i need to go ahead and remove them to another tank or use a divider? or are they fine to be with the others in the tank.

Convicts inch for inch are monsters. I wouldnt move them unless you wanted to save the fry. Hope that helped iv seen a pair of small concixts take over 3/4 of a tank with lager cichlids while spawning.
