Years ago I had a female green terror mate with my male convict. Made the ugliest little fish ever! I let a couple grow out but most of them ended up in my Oscar's belly.

Sorry. No pics. That was in the days before digital cameras (Damn I feel old!). The offspring had the same general shape as the terrors, but were greyish in color with faint vertical stripes. The offspring never bred. I've heard that the males of this hybrid would be sterile, but who knows for sure?

ok so I bought the GTs from a guy on CL like i said before and hes said that they have breed before also. for a couple of weeks their attitude has been calm but now recently the male seems to become aggressive towards the female. like sorta attacking her she has a couple of scales missing from him attacking her. is this normal mating behavior?

also maybe tomorrow i can get a better pic. cause she usually takes them and moves them from the front corner of the tank to the back corner where they are now.

Not unless you have a fry tank for them . Otherwise the parents will take fine care of them. It's the other fish you may need to worry about. New world cichlid parents can be very aggressive protecting their fry.
