    hi all i have a 120l tank with a male and female convict , they have paired off and the female has layed some eggs wich now are begining to hatch in a small vase , the male is constantly right over to the other side of the tank and the female seems very aggresive towards him ? should i put the fry into a small floating hatchery and has anyone got good info on how to raise these fry as i dont want to loose them , ( its the first time she has layed i think )

    Convicts are great parents. I would just let mom and dad take care of them. After a month, you may want to take the fry out because that's when the parents will kill the babies so they can spawn again.
