Yea...I own two jellybean parrots, and now I own six. They had fry. So they can successfully have fry. They have had at least three batches that I have known of, and of those in the second batch, 4 of them survived. The other batches hatched, but none made it. I did not attempt to keep the second batch alive, and amazingly they did just fine by themselves with no help at all!!!

I have 1 Tiger Oscar in a 30 gallon with my Green Texas Cichlid. They are both really great fish to have, the Oscar watches anything that goes on in the room. For example I threw a pen across the room and it saw it and tried to go after it. I will soon be moving the 2 guys to my 55 gallon when I move my 24 african cichlids and my Loaches and Catfish to a 150 gallon that I'm getting in a few months. I am 17 and soon going on to university to become a Icothytologist.

I have two red devils, a huge algae eater, a pacu and a 6.5 inch irridescent shark. I originally also had 3 oscars, a needle nose gar, and a fire mouth cichlid but damieon and debow (the red devils) killed them.

I had a red devil that got about 8in. he lived with an oscar that was the same size, a breeding pair of convicts about 4 inches, a convict texas cichlid hybrid (he was 11 or 12in.), and a jack dempsey cichlid about 10in. They were in a 75 gallon for about 5 years and were rarly ever agressive to anything but feeders. They unfortunetly got ick from a feeder goldfish and died.

I bought a baby (2") angelfish 2 years ago to help cycle a brand new tank. He is now 6". He is the most beautiful fish in my aquarium. He did eat all 7 neons, and he pecked at a bala shark until it finally died. I think he ate all 20 ghost shrimp. The only fish he gets along with are the 4 gourami. I have a 55 gal. tank with 4 fish only. I want to buy other angels but the pet store guy told me no way, since they only sell baby angels and with his reputation he'd probably make their lives miserable. Oh well, I still love him to death. He's still my favorite.

Our Red Devil is the meanest fish on the block. A true bully. We have to put the mean sucker in lockdown to give the other inhabitants a break.

I started my tank in mid december, and filled it with a number of fishes. Two texas cichlids were put in with the lot (about the same size at the time, an inch and a half). One has grown DOUBLE the size as the other, at first the larger chased the smaller, but now they just dig pits in a corner and hover there. The red devil (which is about the size of the larger texas) chases them around whenever they get too close to 'his' territory. They don't seem as aggressive as the other fish in the tank (oscars, red devil, electric yellows, etc.) but they DID pull up all my live plants in the front of the tank (the ones in the rear are fine). this is the second time I've had an aggressive tank, and the texas cichlids are a great addition.

I've got a red devil myself. He's currently by himself, because he's killed (or nearly killed) all his tank mates! When he was first bought, he was about 3 to 5 inches and had a little black spot on his upper lip (like a little mustach). This is why we named him Hitler! Well, he's now full 15 inches and no longer has his mustach, but because he ate the legs (and claws!) off a crawfish (who once lived with him), the name Hitler still seems appropiate!

I HAVE A RED DEVIL, VERY AGRESIVE! HE ATTACKS THE SIDE OF THE TANK WHEN EVER YOU WALK BY IT, BUT HE IS COOL WHEN CLEANING TANK. HE HAS KILLED ALL HIS FREINDS AND IS CURRENTLY BY HIMSELF. COST ME A LOT OF MONEY IN FREINDS BUY IS STILL MY BABY.

Hello My Name is Dan.

I own 2 oscars in a 20 gallon hexagon tank and man do i love them. i bought them at walmart one afternoon and i have been in love with them since. i am 17 so when i am doing my homework they just look at me and try and help me out. When it comes to feeding they are the very quick. Their names are bert (male) and earie (female). Bert is the white one and earie is the red one. they get along great! I havent bred them yet but on somedays it looks like they want to! lol~ Anyways if anyone is bored with looking at a goldfish get these fish. Go recycle 2 months of cans and bottles like i did and get these fish. They are great fish and this site helped me out with the preparation, so thanks for that!
