Exactly! I would wait until you have a top. Also it's a lot safer with a top because a lot of things can fall into the aquarium which could be harmful.

Agreed, plus all cichlids may jump from being frightened by sources outside the tank( sudden movements near the tank, large objects carried by the tank , ect.) . A top is just a good safeguard for your fish and your own peace of mind. Just wait , one week isn't that long to wait for the safety of your fish. :thumb:

From my experimence with convicts they will only jump out if they are chasing food, or if they are being chased, like all those who answered above me said =] Best of luck with your convicts! They are awesome little fish! :fish:
