First off I want to start by saying my blood parrot Bubbles is my absolute baby. He's about 7 mo's old and say 5" long, I have him in a 40g tank at the moment. I recently got a 55g tank which I put 4 african cichlids in but to be honest i tend to spoil Bubbles, hes my baby..so im thinking of giving him the 55g tank which leads me to my question. Are the african cichlids suitable tank mates for bubbles? they're juvi's right now about an inch long each but as we all know fish grow, and african cic's tend to be on the aggressive side so i was wondering how that would work out.
I have had my 55 gal tank for approx 11 years. I bought a BP approx 3 years ago, which is now approx 5". I have 1 clown loach - 2 1/2", 1 alagie eater - 2/1/2" in the tank with the BP. I want a few more fish. I was thinking of Angel or Gourami fish. Would they be compatable with my BP?
Please suggest if the following can be good tank mates....
1> Blood Parrot - 3
2> Jewel Cichlid - 2
3> Tin Foil Barbs - 2
Also provide more details on the Jewel Cichlid
I bought a Flowerhorn a couple days ago. I'm so dumb, haha, I should have thought more. I'm returning it. Luckily they have a two week warranty. I knew not to get one but still I did. Gosh. I'm gonna get a new parrot instead, maybe a Kirin parrot, or Convict parrot because they had a Kirin cross and a convict cross there and may be getting an African Knife Fish. Ugh I can't believe i got it and was so dumb, I never listen. Well im gonna return it so yay. :)
I have a 55 gallon tank. I'm going to use quikrete playsand as a substrate. I'm also going to use river/lava rocks to stack and make hideaways, like a african cichlid layout. I will also plant a few amazon sword plants. I'm going to be running an aqua-tech 30-60 gallon filter AND a aqua-tech 5-15 gallon filter. I used aqadviser calculator to come up with this stocking idea:
1-yellow lab cichlid
1-Demasoni OR red topped zebra (which is more peaceful?)
Hi Everyone. What a great site I have learned alot of valuable information. I have a few questions. I have a 75 gallon tank which has been well maintained for about 6 or 7 years. I am not the original owner but have inherited it when I bought the business it was in. Currently there are two beautiful parrot fish in it one about 5 inches and the other 6 or 7 inches (i'm not if I measure just the body or to the tip of the fins). There is also a spotted Suckerfish (I'm not sure exactly) and a loner goldfish that I thought would get eaten but has som
OK, I need a little help.
My 10 y/o PC is currently housed in a 55 gallon tank with an electric yellow lab (african cichlid) and 9 Buenos Aires tetras. Everyone gets along w/o any problems. My PC is aggressive and used to bully my other blood parrot and Jack Dempsey, so when they died last summer I tried one of the less aggressive african cichlids and it worked. No problems.
Please advise if Texas will make a good tankmate for my parrots?
I've got a question about my new Blood Parrot. I will start by saying I'm new to cichlids in general and did something that in hindsight I shouldn't have, which was listen to the people at my fishstore.
I have a 55 gallon tank with 2 parrot cichlids, rainbow shark, 2 angel fish, and 1 pleco. The tank was initially peaceful for the first few weeks but now one of the parrots is terrorizing everybody except the pleco. Are there any tank mates that I can add to decrease this aggression? I know that eventually the pleco will outgrow the tank and I will have to move him.
