Thanks for the visit
Thanks for stopping by and for the compliment. I totally dig the convicts and they look very happy and healthy in your tank. I've also had a look at your other tank and I like it, see you've got a yellow tang.
Cheers! Stokes

To make things easier for when they spawn. I would take the two females and the two largest showing no signs of color, keep those together and separate the others. When a pair spawns they are very aggressive towards any intruders. If the others are left together, the smaller convicts who haven’t paired will be the pairs first target. For territory reasons, they say to allow 20 gallons of tank per breeding pair if more then one pair are housed together. This I however haven’t found very useful and I believe it all has to do with how your tanks arranged. For instants a tank with many areas to breed (rocks, caves, flower pots, ect.) and a lot of coverage can house more pairs then a tank 10 gallons bigger with little coverage and fewer breeding sites. I wouldn’t bother adding the clay flower pots, stacked slate in my opinion should work even better then the flowerpots.

Convicts
Convicts by far have to be the easiest fish I've bred. First make sure you have a pair, the female when sexually mature will have some orange or red near her belly. Next sit back and you should see some eggs in a few weeks (if it even takes that long). Convict prefer to bred in private areas so be sure your tank has lots of trees and/or hiding places. Also most convict will lay their eggs in clay flower pots that are tipped on their side, so it would be a wise idea to add a few. I would recommend that you only use a sponge filter when breeding. I prefer not to use gravel in my breeding tank, it makes cleaning more difficult and a lot of times babies will swim under and get crushed.
