Hi Everybody, My situation is i have bought a new 308lt tank which i am in the process of setting up. I have 4 juvenile convicts i plan to put in from another tank. what would you suggest to add to this mix?.... I had my heart set on Oscars but understand room/space would be an issue?

you could actually put an oscar in there and if you do, add no other fish. if you decide not to, then don't add other cichlids to the tank ... cinvicts, when spawning are quite aggressive and will create mayhem defending their space. you could add other schooling dither fish such as zebra danios, rasboras or similar which are too fast to get attacked by convicts.
you're never too old to have a happy childhood.

would these fish you have mentioned (zebra danios etc) be ok as dither fish in a tank with a solitary red devil?
