Hi I'm new.

Just thought I'd post about my convict Odd Couple.

Mom (sorry the aspect ratio appears messed up on this web board but if you click her, it will fix itself when it zooms in)

The Family

Their first batch of babies is at about 5 weeks now, very active, and hilarious little batch of fry. They love to eat (in between my feedings) the stuff that grows on the plants I put in their tank. I have a big mass of floating cuttings from my other tanks, and hornwort, which grows a lot of stuff that they like to eat. Along with the feedings of various fry-size foods, this helps most of the fry grow to adulthood.

Welcome Kuhli,

Nice looking convicts, I really like your female.

Congrats on the fry and I think it was a smart idea to put cuttings in your tank that they feed on, you know they wont go hungry in between meals .

It's like trying to count fruit flies. Somewhere between 60-80.

They spawned again while the fry are less than 1/4" in length, but the fry went in and ate their eggs (I saw them do it). Housing Shortage Problem averted. :)
