Of those listed, I think giant danios would have significantly better odds. In a 6 ft. tank, IME, it is likely to work, but in only 37 gal. it's going to be hit and miss, as breeding cons can be rather aggressive and need some space. Any schooling dither needs to be able to swim back and forth, yet be able to stay out of the way. IMO, ginat danios are worth a shot even in a 37 gal.; the others listed have much lower odds of thriving with cons, even in much bigger tanks.Terrordactylll said:Yesterday I got a mated pair of adult convict cichlids in my 37 gallon tank from one of my fish stores close by, and I was wondering if there's ANY chance that anyone has any idea or experience with keeping tank mates with Convicts? I was thinking something a long the same size or close to the same size as them, such as Giant Danios, Rainbowfish, I also hear that Tiger Barbs are okay tank mates with them. Im just trying to have a little bit more variety with these guys, even though I'm aware that it may not work. Anyone have any ideas???
But as far as size, convicts get considerably larger. Males can get 6" and over 100 grams. Females from 3 1/2" to close to 5", 20 - 45 grams. Ginat danios get to around 4" at their large size, and are lightweights at around 10-12 grams. Some types of rainbows could get a little larger, but tiger barbs are definitely smaller yet.
