Ok so I set up my 30 gallon tank. I went to my LFS where I work and purchased 8 convicts. I wanted a pair and then I was going to return the others. So I looked at the tank the other day and saw eggs. A male and female were guarding them. Today I looked and saw another male and female with another set of eggs. What do I do now? I only want 1 pair. Do I wait for them to hatch. Plus the couples are about 2 inches from each other.

Well for starters I would rehome the other 4 asap before they pair up as well. Then you can deal with the 2 pairs.

I took the unpaired cons out already. Even though they are so close together they don't seem to be attacking one another. Here is a pic of the tank. The second pic is the distance between the two couples.

Ok good. I guess so long as they aren't attacking each other they are fine. Just watch them carefully.

The females go at it every once and a while. The 2nd couple apparently moved their eggs or ate them. The female stays in the cave in the corner. The second couple hasn't moved their eggs.
