That depends on what size the aquarium is. If Convicts breed, and they do so very easily, they will defend a territory, and aggressively remove all other fish from it. Typically they will vigorously defend a 3 foot long territory, which can be placed in the middle of the tank. If you have a 6ft tank, the mix could work, though no guarantees.
You could keep one convict with some Labidochromis though, if the tank is at least 29 gallons, the bigger the better.
I've had a solo male pink con in with my mbuna for over a year now, every since it was the size of a quarter. It worked, the only drawback is that the con acts like the mbuna not a normal con...as in it hides when they do etc. The only aggression i see is once and a while it flairs out and does some chasing, but hes the slowest fish in the tank.
