... A convict. I swear, pet store sales are horrible!

While looking around PetSmart, I ended up watching the Convicts, all of which decided to greet me at the front of the tank. It was only when I looked closely that I noticed a rather colorful female.

Well, with me being a sucker for fish, I ended up purchasing her as an unexpected purchase. At least she is happy now..

Re: Looks Like someone ended up with...

I started with one male and one female convict in my 75g. That was four generations ago and I currently have about 15 or so. They breed like crazy. I was able to donate some to a local pet store. Next time I have to be smarter and donate all my males or females otherwise they will start overflowing my tank.

75G - cichlid
55G - community
20GL - RES
55G - TBD

I only got a female, since I knew about their breeding habits. Plus, they tend to be a bit more docile.
