IMG_0651[1].JPG I rescued him from a ten gallon tank. Poor little guy. my hubby hasn't given in to my mts yet so I can't get another tank so my mbunas are picking on him/her a bit. He's only 3 in long so far. I just want him to have a good sized tank to grow up in he's a cute yellow color. ,I live in wooster, oh. So if anyone nearby would like him let me know

Awww, he/she's a pretty one. Shame I don't have a big enough tank to fit him/her.

What will you do if you don't have any takers?

Not sure. I guess I could take him to the store and adopt him out but I don't want to do that. Someone who's gonna put him in a ten might get him again there's a teacher up the road at an elementary school who has a 75 I've been trying to talk him into doing oscars or jds. All he puts in it is feeder goldfish! So of course most of them die. I think he has 2 hand sized goldfish.
I just want this lil guy to have a big tank to grow up in he runs with my mbuna but he can't nip back so he gets his tail ripped. Its ok, just a lil ragged. Sorry bout the bad pics all I have is my phone

They're GOOD pics. Alright, "just for curiosity's sake" - how big would this fish get (tank size wise)?

id take him if i was closer.

a 55g tank would be fine for 2 of them. they get around 10in long.

are you sure hes a jelly bean? usually they are strange colors from dying, the orange is there natural color.

well this is in the b/s/t so no more discussion, pm's only. this is the best place for it though.

it might be a jelly bean im not 100% on what actually makes it a jelly bean.

i really cant even afford shipping right now. hopefully someone will get him from you, very fun fish i have 5 already.

Good morning,

Different places may call a Blood Red Parrot by a different name. It's my understanding that a JellyBean Parrot is a cross between a female Bloody Parrot and a Male Pink Convict.

Too, some folks call a dyed Bloody Parrot a Jelly Bean.

The fish in the photos looks like a Bloody Parrot to me. It may have been dyed in the past but the fish looks fine. I hope you can find it a good home.

Thanks Jojo...yes, from this point on please use Private Messages.

Ken

Thanks

well, my african's are really starting to go after him, some scales on his side are loose, I feel awful for taking him to my store, but at least I'll be able to try to find him a home there too, Bryce doesn't care for bp's but he'll care for my sake and try to find him a big tank. closing the thread. If anyone wants him, he's going to the petco in wooster Oh today. he'll probably be on sale for $10 but bryce always negotiates, theres another in the tank there and he'd probably do both for 20. the other one is 20 so two for one.
