Too many convicts!

    I was wondering what to do with my convict cichlid tank. The convicts just keep popping out more and more babies and now I don't know what to do with them, cause none of my lfs's want them cause they're having the same problem and no one I know wants them. Now, I'm planning to get rid of both fry and adults and start a new tank but I can't get rid of them, so what should I do?

    I'm sort of skeptical of ebay, so I dunno.

    Try www.aquabid.com specialized fishy ebay. I've never purchased anything or sold even but its worth a shot.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but 7 adult convicts will not fit in a 30 gallon tank. You can maybe fit 3 in there, but if 2 are a breeding pair, they'll kill the 3rd.

    Honestly, they'd be better off getting euthanized than being crammed into an overstocked tank.

    Does any one know any somewhat colorful fish that are compatible with convicts cause a tank full of them seems sort of dull color-wise!
