Didn't even know, but my pair of convicts (knew they were a pair when I got them from Petco) have some fry! Couple free swimmers already as well. This is my first time in this situation so any advice would be great! I've never had fry before! Lol.

you can feed them crushed flakes if you don't have an fry food ... convicts are great parents ... just be aware of any tankmates ... they are mean bastards

No tank mates. :) they are in a 20 gallon long, which now that they are having fry will probably upgrade to the 50 gallon I'm getting. I don't have any fry food, but have tetra flakes I feed some tiger barbs I have. I ground some up this morning for them. I also have brine cubes. Will that work? I might go to Petco today and pick up Hikari First Bites.

Then get ready for more, and then the fry will have fry, and on and on... thousand little cons in no time. Nice fish though, I have a few... but no pairs!


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

boil an egg, refrigerate the yolk for an 1 or 2 hours, and you can feed them crumbles from the egg yolk.
