Honestly, in a 29 gallon I wouldn't have any more then 1 pair. They can get quite Territorial when breeding and caring for their young. What will you be doing with all the babies? I used to have a 75 gallon tank that was soon over run with Convicts. They are truly fascinating to watch though. Just make sure you have a plan for the babies. They are very good parents and really guard the babies. They suck them into their mouths and spit them out.
