Convict cichlids in 20gal

If I put 1 con cichlid in a 20gal what else can live with it? Will it be happy in this tank?

I have firemouths in a 3ogal uk and had alittle bit of stick for it. But there only 3in so im ok in my opinion but i think convicts get bigger than a fire mouth i have seen convicts with jack dempseys but i dont know if it is advisable with the aggression issues of chiclids maybe look into a firemouth there colours are cool and mine are fine with an angelfish so can be very peaceful.

But 4mnths ago i knew nothing about keeping fish so everything i say needs confirming

Check the info in our profile, click on the shaded name Convict Cichlid to see the profile. A 20g is not sufficient space for very long, so unless you have plans for a larger tank, I wouldn't get a convict. Note also, it is aggressive so a loner.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
