I have had a breeding pair of convicts for a little over a year now. They started out with 2 others which died after I got home from college. Then they stayed by themselves all summer in a 20 gallon, and when I got back from my internship, they got upgraded to a 30 gallon. Which is where the trouble started. They just stayed in their caves all day. So then I added some cories into their tank b/c food was just settling on the bottom and wreaking havoc on the water quality. Still, they stay in their caves. Then I added some danios as dithers, and they started to come out a little. But then they bred, I took out the babies, and now they have just been sitting in their cave (now a big castle). Every tank they've been in has been sandy with lots of rocks and caves and somewhat densely planted. What else can I do??
