Water Conditions: These fish can adapt to most types of water, and so as usual it's best not to try to change the pH or alkalinity.

Aquarium Size: Black Convicts will eventually need to live in an aquarium with at least 50-gallons of water.

Decor: Black Convicts do not need gravel and a layer more than 1/4" thick will usually fill with bits of uneaten food that will contaminate the water.

Live plants are beautiful and improve the water quality, but this fish will usually dig plants up, so most aquariums with Black Convicts do not have live plants.

Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel Filters are highly recommended.

Most 50-gallon aquariums have room along the back for one Penguin 350B Filter, and this is sort of the minimum set up for Black Convicts.

Better is a 80, 100, 120, 150, or 200-gallon aquarium with as many Penguin 350B Filters as will fit across the back.
