    Now that I have your attention.
    What fish could breed with convicts? Or what small South American cichlids can cross breed? I want to make mutant fish!

    Convicts will x with...

    Texas
    Fire mouth
    Sajica
    Jade Eye
    Jack Dempsey

    Please breed responsibly (the fish i mean), and if you do end up with adult spawn eventually, make sure those whom you sell them to know exactly what they are getting. Handing hybrid fish over to your LFS is irresponsible and a danger to the hobby of fish keeping. Have fun. :good:

    Convicts aren't even south american. They're central american. So trying to get a convict to breed with a south american fish is even more unnatural than trying to cross breed two central american fish.

    Couldn't agree more.

    I know about the hybrids and the do's and donts, I just wanted to know what AMERICAN cichlids or anything else can breed with a convict. The possible offspring would be raised in a 40 G tank with pleco's. I would only do 2 or 3 spawns and feed the low quality fish to my other fish. Then keep the best 4 or so from the spawns and keep them in a much larger tank.

    mutants are easy to make :) ul find convicts will readily breed with just about anything
    ive perfected my mutant.
    so far ive had about 700 Convict+sajica+jade eye hybrid spawn
    really really agrressiv:p but really brightly coloured.
    good luck with your hybriding

    South american to central.....hello texas are from america and convicts are from central america but you can still get a texas Convict...so the chances of central to southern are just as good.
