I see Blood Red Parrot Cichlid are temperature compatible with Zebra Danios ,plus, I do not know much about Blood Red Parrot aggression or diet or behavior.

Can you give me advice on this?
Will Blood Red Parrot Cichlid go after Zebra Danios or any smaller fish?

I would appreciate any help
The danios will be fine. You can also add a school of barbs, rainbow fish with the parrots.

Yes!

You know, You are going to laugh at me probably but I am very fearful of What fish I am going to buy. I do not dare to take risks
What if Parrots eat my little Zebra Danios? I am never going to forgive myself...!

They will not become aggressive. If you are scared then you can buy giant danios.
I think I am going to trust you!
Most of the Fish are not sold in my country plus Zebra Danios are Hardy and more beautiful and playful.

Thanks, Very Helpful!
