CONVICT CICHLIDS - 5CM
The Convict Cichlid has a stocky oval disk shape, with pointed anal and dorsal fins. This is one of the smaller Central American cichlids, with the males only reaching 5 - 6" (13 -15 cm) in length and females a bit less at 3 - 4" (8 -10 cm). They are also very deep bodied so it's easy to underestimate their actual size. They have a general life span of 8 - 10 years, though there have been reports of individuals living up to 20 years.
The Convict Cichlid isn’t an extremely hard fish to care for, but some of its habits can be troublesome for new enthusiasts. The aggressive nature of the Cichlid combined with their tendency to dig holes in the rocks of the tank can make them a frustrating breed.
