How Many Convicts?
New to the forum, just have a quick question.
How many Convict fish should go in a 40 gallon tank? I've just got the tank, set it up and it's been running several days.
A friend has a 55 gallon tank with far too many Convicts in it - she wants to give me some but I don't know how many should go in the tank and still be healthy.
She offered a breeding pair but I don't really think I want to breed them. She can give me just males or just females. Which is better?
Thanks for any help!
If you have the same sex they will fight. I would take the breeding pair. Just because they are breeeding doens't mean you need to make sure the fry survive. The tank is probably still cycling so ask your friend for a sponge from her filter. The breeding pair will be less likely to be aggressive towards each other. I would put more then for convicts with the breeding pair and maybe less. If not the breeding pair maybe six.
