    I am going to upgrade my tank to a 23G and I am thinking of maybe adding a Convict Cichlid to the 23G. Would it be alright if I add it or will I still be overstocked?

    I read that and I saw they would probably eat most of my fish.

    convicts are kept with oscars sometimes... they are little devils. hence the name. they will most definately kill and eat everything in your tank. do NOT get one. if you like the look of them though maybe a different black and white fish. Somebody else should be along soon with some suggestions :) sorry im not much help :)

    I just remembered that I might be getting a tank a little bit bigger than 23G. I'm going to get a tank that's around $400

    No. Asde from having diferent water requirements, they are mean fish and are not meant for a typical community tank.

    Hello Jake. Above is a link on Cichlids that you may find helpful. In most cases, but not all, cichlids should be kept with other cichlids. I'm glad to see that you're doing some research before making your purchases!
    Best of luck!
