I have 16 of these lovely parrots..... in my 4feet aquarium.I do not know much about fish when i got them about 18 months ago, but I loved their splendid colour and charm.... They love to play around and sometimes even tend to exhibit group kinda acts... like when they gang up against my poor chiclids which lastest about a week.... CAUTION they can be hostile when new species is introduced in their old habitat. A friend of mine says that i should have mixed them from the beginning... I do not know but now they all alone ALL 16 of them...

I have an individual kept with Neon tetras and other small fish. It has never even looked like eating them. Great community fish, although it does tend to batter itself if there are no plants in the tank.

I have had a Jack Dempsey for a while now. They are quite aggresive to my Red Devil and 4 blue Acaras. Though he is quite friendly to my two firemouths. They are beautiful fish that need intense care.

Not for the average fish keeper. You need a large tank to keep this bad boy.

Very good fish, active and good cleaners of algea and leftover food. They like clean water and warm temperatures, Buy more than one because they get lonely. Very hardy and doesnt develop any diseases. Very strong, if something happens to your tank they will be the last to know because they are very strong and can withstand a lot of stuff.

Like the INFO says, this fish is unusual and cool. When someone looks at you tank they are most likely to say WHAT IS THAT? The fish is not very active in the day, provide a lot of plants and hiding places where they could hide. During the night when most fish are still this fish will most likely go around for food. get only one because they get big and take up space, but on the other hand they dont move much, and are a great addition to any aquarium!

Why do PETCO and PETSMART keep this fish in small cups? Isnt that bad for the poor fish? But agin males WILL fight, and there is not a lot of space in the store.
BUT, when YOU buy it keep it in a 1 gallon + container.
In a one gallon container their lifespan is 3-7 months, in a cup (just like in PETCO) its around 4-6 weeks, and in a 5 gallon or bigger aquarium thay can really display their fins and colors, and can live up to 3-4 YEARS!

Very peaceful and good for community tanks. Excellent for small aquariums starting from 10 gallons. They will not bother other fish, sometimes males might get territorial, and only sometimes they become fin nippers and attck fishes like angels and bettas. Keep 2 females and one male, thats the best combo i have found.

They are somewhat aggresive when they get more than 4 inches. You can keep them in the community tank, but when they grow larger move them with similar size fish, because they MIGHT start messing with small fish like neons and some liveberears.

You can breed these fish and then raise the fry keep some for yourself and sell some to small pet shops for in store credit. Very cool fish, you can mix colors and make different patterns with the generations of your original mix.
