Actually, no. I have had some experience with some common beginner fish i.g. bettas, guppies etc. and I have a 15 gal. community tank but not too much experience.Welcome aboard
The Convict and Firemouth aren't that difficult to care for imo. I personally would do 1 male convict. Is this your first aquarium?
A small species of schooling fish which move quick would be ideal.Some people say they've had success with zebra danois but some do go missing every few months.My convicts don't realize how small they are and pick fights with much bigger fish and for some odd reason they always seem to win lol.Thanks for all the helpful information, sorry for being late to check lol I was busy but I think I will decide on a convict cichlid, but should I add dither fish for the convict and if so what fish should I add.
