    hi i am planning on getting a convict and a firemouth for my new 40gl tank and i wanted to know if they would breed. i dont want to sell them i just want to maybe keep one of them to see what it looks like when it older. how hard would this be and what could i feed to the fry?

    well convicts and firemouths are not the same species, so i'm not sure why they would interbreed. if you had a pink con, and a regular...then i'd say yes, then they would. idk, i could be wrong though....we'll have to wait and see what others say....

    I don't think they can hybridize. They are in different genus. Never heard of it happening.

    they can and probably will breed...but an intentional hybrid isnt too healthy for the fish hobby IMO ...
