    that's a great looking tanks and fish too, Congrates on the fries! I think mu Convicts are breading, but I gave them to many hiding places for the eggs so I am not sure, are all cichlids egs white to start with or are they different colors, cause I think I spot some in my tank just not sure?

    Sorry to hear about the losses, but the tank does look amazing.

    Did you have only 2 fish in the tank? AFAIK you need to have more cichlids in the tank than the breeding pair because the male gets very aggressive and will attack the female if there's no other fish to fight.

    that would be a big no no, you need several females usually 2 or three for every male and you should have at least 2 or three males, I keep 10 convicts in my 56 gallon, 5 pairs of male and females, everyone has their own space in the tank to call their own, and I have no fighting what so ever from any of them. Even with my 2 Oscars I have 1 male and one female, but because the tank is stocked heavy no aggression happens even towards my 7" pleco who is in there as well.

    My buddy Jason has a couple of pairs alone in tanks. He does use Silver dollars for dithers but His umbee pair for example are the only fish in their tank, and those dont even have dithers I believe and they get along just fine. I think it really depends on the fish when it comes to Cichlids. His Midas on the other hand, those two are separated quite often LOL!



    Also just curios , you call these Green terrors but I am curios which locality they are. I am looking into ordering about 12 or 13 more Carpintis Vontehillo myself. I have one male already (5 inches) that will be going into my big tank when done but I am looking into trying to get a good quality breeding pair for another tank also. Just had me wondering which ones yours were.
