I got 4 angels (two golden and 2 marbled) about a year ago in a 20 Gal. long tank. About 5 months ago, one pair started breeding. Since I have moved the other pair out of the tank, I have successfully kept about 40 babies or so from two batches which I now keep in 2 20 gal. tanks. It has been really enjoyable and I have gotten more entertainment out of them than from my older african cichlid tank.

My Blood Parrots are Surviors! When My husband and I moved to a new place he forgot them in the back of his truck all night in the cold weather. My friend and I found them in the garage the next morning almost frozen in only an inch of water. We rushed them inside added warm water and set up the filter praying they wouldnt die. Sure enough they came back to life and were swimming around and full of life. Later that day I asked my husband why he left them in the garage he said he thought that they were dead, I said no they were just frozen. He kinda laughed but felt bad that he almost killed them. There is a good part to this story which is, now that Ozzy and Sharron (the fishies names) have survied they are smarter than ever. they are even smart enough for the tricks we trained them for. So we are very greatful!

I run the aquatic centre at BIRCHGROVE GARDEN CENTRE, PINCHBECK,LINCOLNSHIRE,ENGLAND (SEE OUR WEBSITE WWW.BIRCHGROVEGC.CO.UK). I would consider the parrot fish to be the best cichlid that i have ever come across.
My pride and joy is a four year old blood red who will never harm any of his tank mates not even the neons that he lives with.
Over the last two months i have been getting shipments of assorted parrots which have come in many colours all of which i have made my own names for and asked customers to call them by these names which are: NEON BLUE PARROT, PINK NEON, CORAL YELLOW, TURQUISE,and the BLEEDING HEART.
Yes i heard about how they get the colour but i believe that this does not effect them in the long run.
I believe the parrot fish to be the best fish to put in your tank if there is trouble between other fish because they soon create order in the tank and become the boss.

Texas cichlids have the same doglike characteristics as an Oscar if they are fed a good diet and given good water conditions. Mine is about 6 inches total and I have had him for 3 years. He is also one of the most beautiful aquarium fish available. My wife says it looks like he has green jewels all over him. Mine is not as aggressive as stated here, he gives a display (fins all the way out and shaking , as other cichlids do) but doesnt usually follow through with violence.

I have had a jack dempsy for a while. he is in a 55 gallon tank and in this tank i have 1 6in buttycawfree, a 4 in buttycawfree, a 5 inch red devil, and a 6inch jack dempsy. I feed them spectrum food which i have found to be the best food on the market for smaller fish. If you have an aggressive jack dempsy and would like to attempt to tame it you should move it too a larger tank

I have recently got myself a Blood Red Parrot Fish, he is such a pleasure to watch in the tank. although he is very shy he can also be very nosy. A good addition to my collection, I like them. But today i put a load of snails in the tank for my clown loach, and my Parrot decided to eat almost all of them. I know they eat anything now including snails.

I have had a Jack Dempsy for about nine years now and i can say that he is the best pes i have ever bought!!!! Although he is very aggressive he will not let any fish in his tank except this sucker fish which is a lil bigger then he is. He has a spectacular color probably the coolest color iv ever seen. I would recommend this fish to any one!

I have one heart parrot that is a beautiful pink. He or she is mixed with a variety of fish including a fermosa, roap fish, angels, silver dollars, irridescent sharks, red tail shark, gourami, butterfly, spotted catfish, and clown loaches, in a 35-gallon hexagon tank. They all do unbelievable well with each other. The only problem that I have run in to is that the heart parrot is the biggest in the tank and the biggest pig too, it eats most of the food and the bottom feeders usually do not get any, I have had to hold the parrot back while feeding others. Another odd behavior I am noticing is that it digs holes in the gravel pellet by pellet with his mouth, but has not laid any eggs, this happens every other week or so and it does get a little territorial during this time.
