Perhaps not mass conversion, but still, 2 out of 6 Vandal kings persecuted Catholics, 5 of them were Arians. When Thrasamund stopped the persecutions, he pretty much stopped them for good. And even if there were no persecutions, the kings still encouraged Arians while tolerating Catholics. I think that by the time Justinian steams in, North Africa should actually be relatively Arian (atleast the Vandal part of it)While Vandal establishment was zealous in the persecution of Nicenes, there is still no evidence of mass conversion from Nicenes to Arianism. It is more likely that the Vandals would have been overthrow by their subjects or a Romano-berber invasion from the interior.
