    Hi guys! We're looking to restock our 80gallon tank soon. The tank only has 1 fish left in it. She is a 19 year old parrot cichlid. Her mate passed away a few months ago and we rehomed our green terror due to it being overly aggressive. Any suggestions for tank mates?

    Tank:
    80gallons
    Live plants
    77 Degrees (+or-1 degree)
    Sand mixed with some gravel
    2 caves

    Wow, if its really 19 years old, I’m impressed. To answer your question, if you’re sure it’s female, a lot of male South American Cichlids. Convicts (I’ve actually seen those two fish make hybrids), Red Devil, Redhead Cichlid, Firemouth, Severums. Also, I found the picture I took of the Parrot/Convict mix that was donated to us, along with the mom Parrot and 4 other hybrids.

    Haha im surprised she's lasted 19 years. And defiantly a female. She makes a nest and lays eggs every year :)
    And thanks! I will do some research on those guys and pick out some!
