A new batch of babies in my convict tank......not surprising. But, mom is marble and dad is marble gene, so there is a chance these will be more than just fish food for my fronts.

They are super easy to breed. Kind of like live bearers....if there is a male and female in the tank.......there will be babies.

You have any pictures? And what do you do with them all. Sell them, or are they fish food?
