Just the convicts lol. But i only got one fry out of three batches. The first batch my male ate them all but one once they were free swimming. Two other batches my male ate them as wrigglers. A day after the third batch was eaten, i woke up to find him torn to shreds and dead. The female happy as can be :P. At this point other than a pleco they were the only to fish in the tank. Thats when i got my 55 gallon and moved it into it, bought a few female, (Theyd dint have any males at the time.) And have been looking for a larger male since, but it seems everytime i go they dont have any, so i only have a smaller male right now. :P

Irdk how old the fry is, but quite a few months. And I assume the female killed him.
