The males are pretty much the same except they dont have the yellow or orange on their bellies (side) or fins. Larger male convicts usually develop humps on their forheads also.
Convicts are very easy to breed.

ok. i guess i had a female convict... bcuz it looks like that but alot nicer.. i moved the convict from the 45g tank to the 30g tank, where it was before... i went to the store and bought a black convict ( male ) i believe... i want them to breed.. =)
the first 4 days the bigger female was chasing the other convict, which i hope it is a male... yesterday i noticed they were swimming together, and rubbing boddies and spinning in circles, and not fighting anymore... what does that mean? signs of breeding??
also... the female is moving rocks with her head and kinda making a pit/ or hole in the front right corner....
thanks and any help:)
