Name that Parrot

I have a 30 gallon tank with one parrot fish. When I bought it, I was told it was a jellybean parrot. After looking at many pictures, I'm not sure if it is a jellybean parrot or not. This fish is very aggressive when I clean his tank. He can close his mouth when he bites/eats. Can you help me identify my fish? Thanks!

Tank mate suggestions?

I recently moved my 4 1/2 inch parrot into a 40g aquarium. I've also added three dither fish in with him and he's doing great. I 've been wanting to add some more fish, but since my aquarium isn't exceptionally large, I'm not sure what kind of other fish I should add that won't get too big, and also won't cause any tension within my aquarium. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Should I let them duke it out?

I have six parrots in a 75 gallon tank. I have a tunnel, a large corner cave and a pot with many holes to swim through. My water perameters are good except my ph is low. It goes up with my weekly water change and back down a day later. I have tried adding stabilizer but it does not seem to be working. I have had this problem since the end of December. I have had my parrots divided in half with three on each side becuase they have been fighting or trying to breed or something. I have three large parrots that keep picking on my medium parrot.

a definitive tank mate thread

Everywhere I read, I get different information about what tank mates are compatible with my BP. She was amazing with my buenos aires tetra and mollies. Life was good. I added a midas cichlid, and my seemingly sweet girl is just chasing the new cichlid around like crazy. Is she going to hurt him? (NOTE: the gender of the fish is only imagination... I don't know) I had enough inches to add another fish to my (now) small tank since they are juvenile. I plan on upgrading my tank size after the move.

junior and flowerhorn update.

i have done alot of research about breeding kirins. it is alot more involved than breeding fh and parrot. this combination breeds kamfa. kamfa look like flowerhorns with some parrot characteristics, ie fins, sterile males, sometimes a shorter body. anyway, junior is in love with the flowerhorn. they are paired up good. swimming together eating and sleeping in the same place in the tank. they spawned not long ago, but right as the eggs wre supposed to hatch, they ate them. errrr! they will try again in a couple weeks or so. he is already trying his pickup lines on her.

Gazoo

I just had to tell you all a funny update about Gazoo. He has been reluctant to jump in the net for about 2 months. This usually happens when he is in his little breeding cycle. Normally, he will wag at the front of the tank, indicating he wants me to bring the net so he can jump in and be hand-fed a food stick. But when he gets an overdose of testosterone, he won't go near the net, and just parades around the tank like he owns the place. So for the last 6 or 8 weeks he has been really impossible to feed by hand. Fortunately he is good at hunting flake food.

Please help a guy out who doesn't know anything about cichlids

I sincerely apologize if this is a huge breach of etiquette for this board. I need some help and you guys might be able to provide it. A quick e-mail from admin saying go away, and I promise you won't see me post again.

I found this topic from a Google search for "250 gallon aquarium"
http://parrotcichlid.com/node/13137
And that's why I'm posting here
I know nothing about fish or aquariums.

Parrot Cichlid Change in Behavior

I have 2 Parrot Cichlids in a 10 gallon tank. Present tank mates include; 1 Tiger Barb, 3 Tetras, 1 Cory Cat, 1 Striped Raphael cat, 1 Plecostamos. All have gotten along reasonably well. PH 7.4, ammonia and Nitrites seem OK. Both Cichlids began to stay up near surface of water(2 days). Presently one is on it side at the bottom and the other is still near surface. I believe both are in distress but cannot figure out what the problem might be. One of the cichlids has had a few dark discolorations. No other visible concerns.
