It can be mixed in small groups a well proportioned tank with other larger acanthurus like the achilles, powder blue, goldrim and japanese(those being in pairs) to recreate a somewhat natural competetive environment often seen on TV but a warning, convicts are rather active so it is better to only keep singles in tanks less than 6x2x2

After 6 months, Mine just dives in with the rest now, pellet frozen, it doesnt matter.
You well know my story with these buggers. Imo if you have anything thats too dominant over them or much larger, they often wont join in a feeding frenzy so miss out a bit.
My answer was just to keep chucking the food in till the others got bored and the convicts got used to it.
Not an easy fish in my opinion, despite claims to the contrary. especially as a long term group.

Ive never found them submissive either but there u go, you learn something new every day. I wonder whether source has a part to play in it. Bali and hawaiian ones seem tough to me and always seem to eat pretty much anything instantly with a slight preference for greens Any ideas where yours are from Si and simon?
FOOD FOOD FOOD the more the better.
