HELP - Convict Cichlid Fry..?

Jaehem

I purchased a convict cichlid from a local store as the FIRST fish for my FIRST tank. (Lucky me) I didn't realize she was pregnant until a friend of mine watching my home brought to my attention all the tiny spawn after my trip. They have gotten big enough to tell what they are and I have the issue of finding a home for them. I have no clue what to do about this and when I can even start getting rid of them. Any time I attempt to clean the tank Momma loses her mind and tries to fight me. Has anyone else had this issue? Any recommendations? I absolutely do not want them lol.

Convicts don’t get pregnant they lay eggs. Do you have two of them? If so it’s probably male and female and you’ve got a breeding pair. If you don’t want the baby’s see if a store will take them and if you don’t want them to breed again you need to get rid of one
