Tank Overheating -- Need ADVICE please???

Hi....Does anybody have an idea to cool down a 180 litre tank. The
problem in South Africa is where I am staying that the ambient temperature in
the room with my fish tank gets to high during the day and my tank heats up to
about 29 degrees Celsius. I have a fan on in the room but it doesn't seem to
help any, except moving the hot air around. I thought at first it was a heater
problem, but it is not, I have disconnected it completely. At night the temperature
will drop somewhat. I know BP can handle 28 degrees but my other fish are not

I want to get a parrot cichlid?

Right now i have a 10 gal. tank that has a few guppies in it, a platy, and a black skirt tetra. My plan is to not buy any more and then when about a year or whoever long it takes and i have no more fish, i want to get a parrot cichlid.
He (or she) would be all by himself in my tank...is that ok?
Is 10 gal. an ok size?
How long about would he get and how old?

I was looking for 2 new BPs to add to my tank and i find this add online and it says selling 10 gallon tank and blood parrot cichlid and i thought it must be a baby to fit in there. So i email them and ask if i could but the BP and not the tank and i asked how big he was. The said i could and the said he has 5 inches long!!!! That made me soo angry!! A 5 INCH BP IN A 10 GALLON TANK!!! ARE THE MAD!! ant then they had the nerve to tell me that he couldnt go with my other fish because he was agresive!

New Text editor being tested -please try posting pics of your fish

I've uninstalled the old text-editor that was giving us problems, including uploading images. The new one, OpenWYSIWYG, appears to work well with Firefox, but does not work with Safari. So it probably will not work with Chrome. I don't have Internet Explorer, so if you can test it with IE, I'd appreciate it.
This one should also work in comments as well as posts, which would be an improvement.

If you are having trouble posting - please wait till tomorrow afternoon. I made some changes which may have created problems. I'll try to have it fixed by then.

Update! There is a new text-editor in place. Please try it out - kick the tires, try to upload an image.

HELP! I THINK SMTH IS REALLY WRONG WITH LUCY!

I bought Lucy around 2 weeks ago. She was bright orange and shy. After a week she stoped being shy and started to follow my finger around on the glass, so she made everybody in the house happy:)
2 days ago something changed... Lucy stoped eating, became very veryy pale and was moving around really slowly. Now it's even worse: her head's "skin" has something like wrinkles and her eyes changed color and became smaller..!

My Story

I bought 2 small blood parrots and put them in a tank. Thought nothing of it soon I noticed they were fighting with each other so I figured they would settle down in a little while Nope was not happening .So i got the brainy idea to get a bigger one to put in the tank with them thinking that would stop them from fighting ,well you can guest what happen the big one terrorize them .So now I have 3 tanks one for each fish.So the some of my story is to really know your fish before you buy  :) have a great day pern

4 adult blood parrot cichilds need a new home

I live in Santa Barbara, California and have enjoyed my 4 adult blood parrots for 4 years but now have to find them a new home as I'm moving to Mexico.  They reside in a 70 gal rectangular tank, which also needs a new home.  If any one is interested in buying these fish and tank, please make me an offer.  I'd like to get at least $200 for everything.  ... I have and continue to advertise on Craig's List but it would really be nice to know that I have handed these fish off to some one who really appreciates them.  Michael Ogle (805-898-0211)
