I have 2 convict cichlids. They have had babies twice and I think they are ready to have them again. I now have two 10 gallon aquariums full of baby convict cichilids. I was going to use them to feed my daughter's piranha, but after reading the comment from Anonymous on 3-17-2008, it may not be a good idea.
I have no clue what to do with what looks like 150 babies. I do believe I will be separating Mommy and Daddy. I wonder if they will kill other fish...

I have a convict cichilid. He was about the size of a nicklel when I got him, now he is about 5 inches long. He redecorated everything in the tank but he is a very kool fish, very fun to observe and watch him work.

My dad had a pink convict and a piranha in the same tank and the convict killed the piranha. They will take on fish way bigger than themselves. They bad!
