So, I have only ever had community fish except Angel fish, I have never had Cichlids. I just got a 55 gallon aquarium standard. When I set it up and cycle it I would like to get into Cichlids for the first time. I appreciate any advice. I was looking online before and see mixed reviews. My favorites are the Blood Parrot and Albino Oscar. It just so happens in my lfs today they had one of each in the same tank plus some others but I don't know what they were. I was wondering if I set my 55 up could I have one of each in there? It would be those 2 only. The ones today are young but I am allowing for full grown. I think it may be pushing it with the Oscar space wise alone. That is my dream combo but if not ok. Second choice could I keep 2 Blood Parrot in the 55? Do they fight each other or no? And also, do they like more open space or more plants, decorations? What is best suited for them? And lastly, what about a shoal of Cory cats for the bottom or would they get attacked?
