Yes, you should be fine. Make sure you have hiding spots in case the RS gets harrassed.

How big is your JD and how big would the RS be? I would make sure the RS wouldn't fit in the JD's mouth. That would be my only concern.

Hope this helps.

Would that work or would that be overstocked?

Yep it works, but id stick with the rainbowshark, iv got one and He's So lively and so tame, they do need hiding spaces tho. Iv had my shark for 7 years now and he's still going strong.

you might have to do more water changes (as mature adults) but your cons and jd are mostly middle/bottom where your lone parrot is middle/top (or at lease mine are) and I can say I bet you would have more interaction from your parrot with a buddy....but again, that's my perspective ;D

I agree with shawnie. Mine are much happier in a group of three compaired to when I had a lone one.

Gotta love those parrots!!!

I have 3 parrots with my rainbow shark. Very occasionally, the smallest BP will give a little bit of chase to the shark, but not often. And it never amounts to anything.

My rainbow does not care for the quick movements of fish like zebra danios, however. Makes him nervous, I guess.

I have 1 adult rainbow shark and he is tough as nails. he's the meanest fish I have. he never attacks anything but he chases anything that comes near his area out immediately and all his tank mates know better. my firemouths don't mess with him.
