Blood parrots are real interesting creatures. I own a fish shop in
singapore and I can sell about 15 a day. I recommend placing a slate bridge in the tank. After a week, they will get used to it and will play around it often.

Red Devils are great interactive fish. As mentioned on another post, they will come up to the glass and follow you. I run my fingers across the tank glass and RD likes to chase. This is their obvious territorial nature trying to have a piece of me. When feeding if you dip your finger in the water they will bite you, though my RD is only about 9cm (4") and teeth won't rip you to shreds. Though I may be a bit more reluctant if it grew to full size. My son also has another one. We had them in a single tank (app 60litres) but they would go at it hammer and tongs, so we separated them with glass first then into separate tanks.

Hi i had two red oscars and i bought them about a year and a half, they were like only 3 inches long and i feed them with blood worms. Now one of them is like 24 inches long and the smaller one is like 21.5 inches long. Boy i love feeding them, the bigger one can jump out of the water and eat the food. they had laid eggs before, usually when i feed them with fish(heavily), but i don't get it when the eggs dissapear.

I have had an electric yellow cichlid for about two years now. He was adopted from a friend who had a larger male that was beating him up. I had a fake wood log in my tank that he would hide in for the majority of the day. I recently removed this log and rearranged my tank. Within a few days I started noticing burrows because he cant hide in the log.
This is by far my favorite fish and can have quite a personality at times.

I have three 3 inch blue moorii mixed with many other fish in 55 gallon tank. They are so cute and beautiful! I can't wait until they grow up to be even more beautiful! Rumor said that they are slow in growth rate, but I dont care about that as long as they live happily and healthy. I will love them forever!

We purchased 2 Fronts at a local petsmart. approx $4-7.00. They are beautiful however they do get LARGE quickly. Ours outgrew our 30 gal tank in about 6 months. We gave them away when they were about 7-8 ins long. Beware also if your smaller tetras seem to disappear. we could not keep neons in numbers, they kept disappearing. Also the fronts were always pulling up the plants and moving rocks. I feel they would be happier in larger tanks.100-200gal.
