  1. Tank Size: Provide a tank of at least 30-50 gallons for a pair or small group of Convict Cichlids. Larger tanks can accommodate multiple individuals.

  2. Water Parameters: Maintain stable conditions with a temperature range of 72-82°F (22-28°C), a pH level of 6.5-8.0, and moderately hard to hard water.

  3. Filtration: Effective filtration is crucial to maintain water quality and oxygenation. Convict Cichlids are hardy but produce waste.

  4. Aquascape: Create a setup with rocks, caves, and hiding spots. Convict Cichlids enjoy rearranging the substrate, so provide sturdy decorations.

  5. Tank Mates: Convict Cichlids are territorial and aggressive, especially when breeding. Keep them with other robust cichlid species or large, equally aggressive tankmates.

  6. Diet: They are omnivores, accepting high-quality cichlid pellets, live or frozen foods, and occasional vegetable matter. Provide a varied diet.
