I have 1 jack dempsy, 2 black convicts, 2 jewel cichlids, 1 nicarguense, 1 green terror, 1 geophagus altifrons, and 3 african cichlids in a large tank. My jack is about 7" now, he is exceptionally colorful and is actually one of the least aggressive fish in my tank. He hates when other fish are being aggressive towards each other near him and he will usually chase the aggressor away! He is definitely the boss of the tank.

I have one that is about 5" now. I have a good mix of colorful cichlids in my tank and this is definitely one of my favorites.

My parrot fish have had layed eggs about 4 days ago ang just this morning were hatching. My parrot fish are a beautiful sky blue color and my female i noticed was a bright yellow at the chest when it was in heat. Any way after i left for college this morning i came back to find that all the eggs had gone, and had beeen moved to a different part of the tank.

I have at least 100 jellybean parrot fish and love them. They give me and my husband much pleasure watching as they lay their eggs & watch over them. Then the fry are just a great pleasure to watch grow. We got started with them 1-2 yrs. ago and have never got tired of them yet!

hello
I have had my Bloody Parrots now for almost 4 years. Well one is not with us anymore and so I got me one other one. Its so amazing how they know who is feeding then and who takes care of them. When it is feeding time they even jump out of the water just to get the first bite. They do not like other people and when we do have someone coming over they will hide. But they love my kids and me. Even when I just walk by they are on the top waiting.( I know its food they want. LOL) But I talk to them and watch them. They always pick on each other . Not in a hurtful way just pick here pick there. They are sure funny. Thanks for reading.

I have 4 beautiful jellybeans {pink,blue,orange,yellow} sad to say green and purple died. My four fined friends are not friends themselves.T hey are very territorial and always trying to push each other out of the favorite cave. I bought these fish because of there beautiful colors but they are always hiding. when people come over they always ask if there is anything in the tank. I thought it was beacuse it was a new enviroment. Here I am two years later still waiting for them to lose ther shyness. I have heard they are very entertaining and active.Just my luck I pick the reclusive ones. But when I can find them I still think they are beautiful.

We recently bought a bloody parrot fish. After extensive research and talking with numerous people, we put ours in my nonagressive tank with a lower PH and fish which include discus, silver dollars, severums, tetras, cory cats, and a few swords. Since we put the parrot fish in with these others I have noticed that it seems much happier and very comfortable with his or her new tank mates. What a beautiful addition...

My Texans just spawned and both are protective parents. Both parents have scooped up the wigglers now and have deposited them in a central location where they hover and fight off all comers. It looks like they are eating the fry but they are simply relocating them. Those helpless wigglers are being eyed by all and sundry. But the brave parents will not let anyone close.
