I would say no. When they got to be full grown, they would kill everything else in the tank.

It'll have to check in with its parole officer on a regular basis.

More importantly what other fish will make up the community?

I believe this discussion is about a 15 gallon tank.

Good afternoon,

I highly suggest that a Convict be kept with other Cichlids and Cichlids only.
