if it is any help, I used to have convicts in a 30 gallon for about 6 years, love these fish, along with firemouths and jack dempsey's, they all seem to have the same temperament.
and yes, convicts breed very easily, you should be good with a 30 gallon, I had a 33 gallon when I used to keep freshwater.
