Definatly not. They are too aggressive to have with your current stocking.

Because I love convicts?

I would say no. You seem to have some stocking issues already. Are you hoping to breed the mollies? If so, I would do just a dedicated tank. The cories should be upped to a school of at least 6, and what gouramis species and genders do you have?

What filter are you running?

Also, what type of cories are in the tank?

The answer is still no. You would be overstocked, and a single female would still be too aggressive.

What is the filtration on your tank? Also, if you like South American cichlids in general, a less aggressive choice could be a blue acara or a geophagus steindachneri. I've had luck with them in my community 38.

The only cichlids I can think of would be Apistogrammas, but I don't think they'd work with your current stocking.

Discus work best in a species only tank and are social so don't do great on their own.

Can I keep 2zebra convicts with
2 mollies (pair)
1 swordtail
2 German blue and electric blue
2 Gouramis
4 panda cory??
I have 29 g tank
I would advise against it. I have a pair of convicts in my tank and they’re very aggressive towards the other fish. Plus you have mollies and other community fish in there. I wouldn’t chance it

Kribensis would be a cool choice, and they don't get too big. They pair pretty easily, look pretty nice and are quite peaceful. I would recommend those in terms of small and colorful.

I think a pair of kribensis would look pretty nice in that tank. They are colorful, active and peaceful. Plus, they don't get much bigger than 4 inches.

You could try some golden german rams. I would say apistogrammas, but I'm not so sure how they would work if they would at all.

I really like koi angelfish a lot. They’re non aggressive and they’re cichlids. Gouramis are cool too. As far as the dwarf Mbuna let me do a little research and I’ll get back to you on that

If you do go with some cichlids still, I’d say go with rams and kribs

You already have Rams in the tank, that is all the Cichlids you can put in a 30 inch long tank. Even the smalllest Mbuna are highly active and aggressive, and would decimate all the species you currently have in the tank. If you remove the rams, there are a few Cichlids that could replace them, but your tank is too small for more than one species. Angelfish are out because of the fin-nipping Swordtails.

The Mollies and Swords prefer hard water in the mid 70s F, while the Rams and the Gouramis want soft water in the 78-84 F range. Panda Corys also like it a bit on the cool side, and are fairly tolerant of hard water as they are mostly commercially bred these days.

They are a fish that's happiest in a group. I wouldn't buy a fish with a view to rehoming it in a few months

Yes clown loaches are cool to keep. It’s like they have personality and the help keep it clean

Honestly once your fish get all grown up your pretty well stocked. I know everyone wants more but I find once you overstock the fish becocome less active so it ends with more fish but less activity. Its a fine balance to get fully stocked with out activity going down. So in this case less is more.

Why not set up a separate tank? Convicts are on the smaller side of cichlids so u won’t need a huge tank. At least 30 gallons tho. But they are pretty aggressive towards other fish even other bigger cichlids. I just wouldn’t do it with your tank now. Your convicts will b fine but every other fish....???
