Don't worry about it, maybe PM a mod and ask if they can do anything... eventually it will get buried but put a link in your last post to the new post so people don't answer here, they can answer over there.

The best possible advice I could give you right now would be to choose from 2 available options.

1.) Give the fish to the local pet/fish store.
2.) Upgrade the aquarium as soon as possible.

A 5 Gallon aquarium is not suited for one convict, much less 2. If you intend to keep the breeding pair and the fry, then I would recommend a tank no less than 55 Gallons. Your other option would be to get the 40 Gallon aquarium and allow the convicts to breed in the 40 gallon aquarium and transfer the off spring to the 5 gallon aquarium where you can sell them or give them away.

Point period is that regardless of PWC or water conditions, the tank is simply not adequate to house those fish.

Best of luck!

Ok thank you Guys, I think im going to start looking into getting a new tank. Right now the Convicts are still juvenile and less than 2" each so that should buy some time to get a new tank!
