I moved a female convict chiclid from my 20 gallon tank into my 55 gallon tank on September 28th 2008. She layed eggs on the September 30 or October 1st 2008. The eggs hatched on the 5th of October 2008. These fish do not mess around they wasted not time. The parents are very protective of the babies too. I will add pictures of them on here soon. I have pics of the eggs and of them hatched. It is fun watching them grow. The grow so fast when they are little.
