Adding a new Convict and a question about Kribs


I am thinking about setting up a 70g aquarium. If I do that I was thinking about putting my Serpae Tetras in it and using my 29 for a breeding pair of Convicts. I have a 2" male right now and have found some females that are just a little larger at a lfs. Is a 29g ok for a pair of convicts? If so how would I introduce the new convict?

I was also thinking about putting a pair of kribs in the 70g. What other fish could I keep with them?

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.
