You should actually keep the serpaes in with the convicts. It'll give them something to chase. If they're kept alone, they may panic and turn on each other, and it isn't quite pretty. I have a pair of convicts with 10 serpaes in a 20 long. Haven't lost any convict fry or serpae tetras yet. In a 29, it's high enough to where the tetras can simply swim away from the convicts. Adding a lot of rocks and wood will help dial down the aggression and stress on the parents.
