Hi all, I just rehomed my blood parrot from my standard 38gallon tank. I now want to start a single species cichlid tank (not african), looking for suggestions. Thinking about sajica or any other cichlids not common (their not common in my area). Oh, my tank will have driftwood & rocks but no plants. Thanks in advance for your responses.

Hello!
These are some that I think of at the top of my head:
• South American cichlids (these include the dwarf varieties)

• "Unique" South American cichlids (these of course require their own care needs/tank sizes, etc. they're just suggestions for non-Africans)
-angelfish
-discus
-blood parrots (you've already have them tho, so u can ignore this one )
-flowerhorn cichlids

Unfortunately, the African cichlids encompass A LOT of the variety, but luckily, not all of it!

Hope this helps and all the best!

I'll second a sajica pair. Of course, I do like cockatoos - you could do a male with several females and have a species only harem!
