    20g minimum...male/female pair...no other fish in the tank...few hiding caves....leave them be...they can have 50-200 depending on age of mom and dad...the more times they spawn, the bigger the spawns are

    If they don't sell them at your LFS, you could post an ad in the Buy/Sell/Trade section of the forum, Aquabid, or on Craigslist.

    Can I ask what part of the United States you live?

    Craigslist may not have any ads for Convicts, then.

    I would say your best bet would be here or on Aquabid.

    You can find them at most decent fish stores. Usually if you observe them for a few minutes you can pick out an already paired couple.
