can you help me. iv now got a tank with only convicts as they have killed all the other fish.yes they have newborn, so many, this is the second time, the last lot dissappeared, how can i help them grow safe ? please help
If you want to raise the babies you need to move them into a separate tank as the adults will kill them when they spawn again, and they could spawn every month or more. However, do consider what you will do with them if you raise them as convicts are hard to find homes for and because they breed so readily, many shops won't taken them off your hands even for free.
