I got my Blood Red Parrot today and it is acting really weird. It is hanging out at the bottom one minute behind one of the plants and then the next thing I know he is at the top of the tank in the corner facing downward. All of my levels are normal. I forgot to write them down sorry so I don't know exactly but I remember the PH was 7.2. I did research on them and they like the higher PH levels so I am not thinking that is too high for it and that it wouldn't make it act like this. I am really worried about him. He is in my 30G tank alone. I have never had any fish in this tank and it cycled for 2 months so I know it is definitely cycled properly. It's just really weird behavior. I am not used to Cichlids. I have mollys and platy's that I breed in several of my other tanks so I am used to them. I am not sure if he needs something different or if this is normal. I don't want him to die but that is kind of how it looks the way he is acting. I have seen other peoples posts saying that their fish were doing the same thing and that it was normal but I just got him home about 4 hours ago. He hid a little then came out and I fed him some brine shrimp. Then all of the sudden he started acting like this. Is it b/c he is alone? Do I need to go get him a buddy right away? I plan on getting another one next month b/c I am kind of tapped out for this month on extra stuff I can buy. I have all my chemicals and things like that that I need for all of my tanks and my food ect that I get monthly and have money put back in case of a sick fish to get medicine but I have ick and also fungal meds on hand at all times just in case. So basically what I am asking is is this normal or should I be concerned? I don't want to wake up to wake up tomorrow to a dead fish. I love him so much and he is so adorable and I have been wanting to try a new type of fish and did a lot of research on him but every where I look it says something different. So I am coming on here to ask all of you that have dealt with this fish in particular and would know more. Please help.
