So I have a nice 75 gallon with parrot cichlidscatfish and benos Aries tetras as dithers I was wondering if convicts would be a good choice. I have 4 years of experience with other South American cichlids but I haven’t worked with convicts due to the conflicting things I’ve heard
I my experience, convict cichlids are some of the most aggressive cichlids you can purchase. I had one many years ago. It was an albino (pink) convict. I had to keep it is a tank by itself as it would attack any other fish I tried to put with it. Your experience might not be the same as mine, but I doubt it is worth the risk.
