Convict cichlids being aggresive
Hello, I have 2 male convict cichlids in a 20 gallon tank right now. I was just wondering if you guys think this is ok. They are both pretty small right now but one seems 2 bully the other. There was originally one cave in the tank, but i added another to try and see if that would deter some of the aggression. Anyway i was just wondering if these guys will make it long term?
No they will not make it long term. Especially in a tank that small. Remove one of them immediately and trade it in for a female. You will also need to add more caves for them to thrive
So do u think a male and female would be ok in a 20 gallon?
Whether or not they will be perfectly okay I can't say, but they will be much better off than 2 males in the tank.
having a male and female could be dangerous for the very reason that they are easy to spawn and then they get just downright MEAN. A friend of mine had a breeding pair of them and we had to design a piece of plexiglass to fit down into the tank for cleaning because the parents would guard their young so well they would even bite the human hand!
wow thats pretty intense lol.
