    Hi everyone. How is everybody? I took a lot of time off for school and work. I downsized my tanks. Right now I just have a 5 gallon betta. I was going to set up a convict breeding tank in a 20 long. I know there is a lot debate at the LFS where I live about whether or not they can be in a 20 gallon. I was wondering opinions about that.

    I have bred convicts in a 20g long with no problem. The most important thing is to have plenty of lines of sight breakups, such as decorations, plants, etc. Some pairs get cranky with each other when they spawn. LOL!

    Thanks. I'm going to start the tank up soon. I might do a 30 gallon if I have the room but that's good a 20L will do fine.
