Just wanted to provide some observations on the Blood Parrot. He seems to be slow to the food and doesn't like competition for it. Prefers to feed away from the other fish. Once he finds the food, he attacks it...even flakes. He is sharing a fake hollow log with a 3" Clown Loach. The orange seems to be spreading and he is about 50% black and 50% orange now. If my Blood Parrot is typical, it seems you would have to make special feeding accommodations for one in a Cichlid community tank.
Thanks for the input Frank I was hopein that y'all would have some advice for me some of these fish are new for me as well as the idea of houseing them together in a community . Since my last post on this I have been asking other breeders I know as well and it seems that its not a good idea everyone agrees with y'all about the diffrences in each species an their houseing inviroments and company . While all are soft water fish an have matching pH needs they are a mix of slow pocile fish and fast rough ones that just wont live well together , oh well it was a cool idea ...back to the ole drawing board lol. So what sounds like a good " odd " community for the new tank ?
