    Most likely. Unless you have an overly aggressive female, there should be no aggression problems. The biggest problem is that the Honduran Redpoints will often mate with convicts.

    they will hybridize and IMO its not enough room for both of their territories at the bottom. maybe an angel instead bc theyre more in the upper region? thats what ill be doing with my cutteri(closely resembling a convict)

    A convict with an angel will NOT work. The convict will rip it apart.

    Closely related, but generally not as aggressive as convicts. Female convicts are notorious for hybridizing with just about any other species in the tank if there isn't a male convict available. However, if the HRP's are an established pair the male isn't as likely to breed with the convict.
