Just for fun - My parrots perform for you on camera

I just got a great new camera, so I 'll be putting up a lot of parrot cichlid movies on YouTube soon. Here 's one to start with. You 'll see Micro and Twinkie first, then the rest of them come on set. --ParrotCichlidGirl

Winston's houses

When they were young, Winston and Gazoo were a funny mixture of paranoia and curiosity. Every minute or two, they would retreat to one of the flower pots we had put in the tank, and press themselves flat against the top of the pot. This was their "security blanket." When they felt secure again, they would come racing out of the pot to see what was going on.

Winston and Gazoo

Our two oldest Parrot Cichlids were purchased about 2-1/2 years ago. Winston is now about 10" tall from the bottom of his stomach to the top of his dorsal fin. Gazoo is about 2/3 of Winston's size.

Winston is actually female, but we didn't know that when we named her after Winston Churchill.

Winston is definitely the dominant fish in the tank, and Gazoo is "second fish." Winston tries to head-butt everyone in the tank when needed just to keep them in line. Gazoo almost never does.
