I have three convicts in a 30 gal in my sons room.I went in to do my weekly water change. An one of the females is in there guarding a rock .Her tube is out so she's gonna lay eggs soon.But she's not paired up.There's one male in with her.But she defends the rock against him too. So do they guard with their lives like that even though they have not paired?

Not sure, I have a pair of convicts in mt sons room (for feeders) and they have free swimming fry right now. But I was easilly easy to see the eggs. I had firemouyh wigglers about a week ago. but moma ate them. Still not sure what streesed them out. Hopefully my next firemouth breeding goes better. that was their first spawn.
