    I’m assuming you mean A blood parrot cichlid? Personally I think it may be just a tad overstocked because the BP is very messy. I think that the black skirt tetras will be fine but your corked may be in danger considering he/she may eat anything that can fit in their mouth. Do NOT switch to sand BP need medium to large sized substrate so they don’t swallow the whole bottom of your tank when they eat. Hope that helped! (I have a blood parrot right now and he’s not THAT aggressive, he hasn’t nipped at any fins although he is feared by my Texas cichlid who is at least 2in bigger than him so it’s a hit or miss.)
