In my expierience it is difficult to sex convicts and many other species when they are young. Convicts I cared for were easier to sex as they became sexually mature. Females were usually smaller, and some developed red bellys when ripe ,while males,tended to be larger with longer dorsal and anal fins.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
