well convicts are not live breeders but if you mean you think she is about to lay eggs then it is possable because they breed like crazy! if you don't want any agresion in the tank get rid of the eggs by taking them out of the water and killing them off. but you then won't be able to keep one. however other wise you will have to wait till they mature then get rid of however many you want but like i said these fish are egg layers so they don't really get pregnant like a molly or sward tail will.
