Blood Parrot Cichlid

    I have a young blood parrot cichlid in a 29 gallon with a bristlenose pleco. Filtration is the marineland penguin biowheel 150 with two filter cartridges as well as a perforated tube aerator in the tank. I think this is a suitable setup for now but I'd like some opinions on whether or not i need to upgrade to a 55 gallon or larger for this one particular fish. He's very special and I want to take the best possible care of him.

    A 55 if required for them,they need room to swim and can grow big.

    That's what I thought. Thanks for the feedback. Can any other fish live with him? Ram cichlids or bigger tetras of some sort?
