Yes but if they get to max size will they be ok I was told yes, the mollies I worry about as i've seen them they sleep on the bottom of the tank at night. I plan on getting at least a 36 gallon tank in the next three months when I move to move some of the smaller fish out. I went to the fish store I trust near ohio lady there said she had covicts and parrots with danos with no issues before

It takes around 3 years to get to max size from I last remember.

Convicts and parrots can't eat giant danios no matter the size. Their mouth is too small, so they don't even try. I've seen a 4" bichir rip apart a silverside, so that gives you an idea of their aggressiveness at eating fish.

So I have some fish moving to do or what would you do if you were me prob can not get another tank for at least a month or two. The mollies even though big would they be hassled too much by convicts?

Up to you decide what you want. I'm just letting you know of a possible outcome with the bichirs and giant danios.

Immutable Fish-Keeping Law # 3: Any fish will eat anything it can fit in it's mouth

Polyopterus species are carnivorous. :evil:

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
