I have a 40 gallon tank with 2 convicts a blue acara and a green severum. They are all under 4 inches. My convicts have never gotten along and my female convict has always been the dominate one in the tank. It has gotten so bad that I had to seperate her with a piece of plexiglass so that she would stop beating up her tankmates. Now that she is seperated she has dug a pit in the gravel and laid about 50 eggs. I thought this was strange because the male and female are sperated. Is there a chance that these eggs could be fertilized? The are a brownish color, and about 3 are white. From what I have been reading the brown are fertilized. Can anyone tell me what could be going on? Thanks.

Sounds like pretty normal convict behavior I have a pair in a 100 gallon mixed south american tank and they keep everyones fins nipped and keep having babies good luck. Brian in Austin
