I have three Parrot fish that I have had for about 3 months now. One is a jellybean and the other two are parrots. Can someone tell me hhow to tell the sex of them? I would really appreciate it. When we bought them, we weren't informed that they were cichlids, and they told us that they were very peaceful. We haven't had any problems out of them, they are in a tank with mollies and loaches. It seems that as long as they have plenty of hiding places, they are ok with other fish. I have rock in my tank, and each one of the Parrots have their own space.
