how to breed convict cichlids and how many fry do i expect
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
where do i get a pair
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.
:animal0068: Hope you don't mind, your question has been moved to the breeding section of the forum.
