Lol probably because the convict will end up a little big for a 29, it is doable but not ideal. Just research the suggestions and pick what you like. If you like the convict go for it. Like I said it’s not ideal tho but not a sin either
Okay, since the convict is not ideal I would probably need to do some extra maintenance so I might as well pick a different suggestion.

Ok, but I'm starting to think about the pearl cichlids and the african red eye tetras. Any suggestions for those?

The Pearl cichlid would get bigger than the Con so a non starter.
I mentioned the African Red eyed tetras as dithers for Jewel cichlids. They are from the same areas in the Congo River, and don't get as huge as Congo tetras that I think would outgrow a 29.
