Problem with convicts is that they don't stay small. Five or six inches when adults and they are often not very tolerable of other fish especially if you should happen to have a male and female who decide to spawn.
I believe judging from your past posts, that you are hoping someone will offer you different advice than what you have recieved on this topic going back a month or more ,and I would be suspect of any advice other than what has already been expressed. People often purchase convicts much the way they do livebearer's cause they hear that they are easy to breed which is true. The difference between the two species is that livebearer fry are much more easily given away or sold, convict fry are often hard to GIVE away due to their disposisition as has been mentioned. There simply aren't any suitable tankmates for convicts in 29 gal.
