Thinking of buying a couple.

I had some several years ago and just got rid of my Discus so, I have  a 75 gallon available.  Can someone tell me the difference between the jellybeans and the blood parrots?  Do they do better in a group or singly?


I think they may be a cross between convict and parrot cichlid, but am not sure. Try searching this site for jellybean, there's been a lot of conversation on them. I made the mistake once of buying a dyed one without realizing it, and he did not live long. They would probably get along fine. We had tiny golden convicts and parrot cichlids in the tank together for a long time and that worked out well. Full size aggressive convicts and parrots, however, not a good idea.
