    Hi I was wondering if any one would know if a parrot cichlid would get on ok with these tankmates:

    6 neon tetras
    3 platies
    1 dwarf red gourmi
    1 torpedo barb
    1 angel

    if any one replies thanks! :;fr

    I would have to say no to a parrot for many reasons.
    Firstly your parrot may eventually eat your neons.
    Secondly, your tank is already overstocked :(
    95L is a 25G tank, torpedo barbs need to be in a group of atleast 3 in a minimum of a 30G tank and the angel could do with being in a 30G aswel.

    If you were to take back the barb and the angelfish I would say that your tank is fully stocked.
    Sorry I can't give you any better news,

    Good morning,

    I agree with the above posters. Too, I really recommend that Bloody Parrots be kept with at least 1 more of its own kind.

    I've moved your thread to the Hybrid/Parrot Cichlid section of the forum.
