Female Male

Is my male convict needed after spawning?

Eggs where relocated by female. Male keeps getting chased and picked on by female. Im afraid he might not make it if this keeps going on. He looks and acts scared. Male will not defend himself. Stays in one corner of tank. She still comes out of cave to chase him around. Added 2 small guppies to try to distract female, not much help. He will not chase guppies either, just stays in corner. Help.

Convicts are usually pretty good parents, but the odd time one half of the pair decides to raise the spawn alone. I think you were on the right track with adding dither fish. If the parents lack fish to protect their fry from that aggression can be turned on each other. Next time they spawn (and I am 120% sure they will spawn again, and again, and again, they are convicts after all :) ) have the dither fsh already in the tank. For now though remove the male, but do not put him back with the female and spawn after the fry are free swimming as was previously suggested. Fish often loose thier parental instincts once removed from thier fry and he may try to snack on them once he is reintroduced. As well the female will be doublly protective at that point as there is now an "intruder" into her teritory. Keep him out until you pull the fry and then put him back together with your female. Good luck.
