    I know ive probaly asked this but How much room would 2 Fully grown dempseys need? How much would 1 need?'

    Im thinking about getting a 33g if not a dempsey how many convicts do you think i could stock it with?

    Jack dempseys would need a bare minimum of 40 gallons each so I don't recommend puttting any in your tank.

    I think a 33 gallon would be good for 2 convicts (but only get 1 gender unless you want 1000's of babies).

    you could have 2 cons in a 10g perfect and they will breed just give them caves

    10 gallons is too small for 2 cons. They're relatively large, messy fish so you'd have some major water quality problems. Not to mention how cramped they'd be.
