My Blood Parrot Cichlid was so colorful and beautiful. They are really cute fish. My BPC was very friendly towards me and was always came to the glass when I came in the room. I got my Blood Parrot Cichlid for my 30 gallon tank when she was very little. At the time I had my Blue Crayfish in that tank. She did not get along with him. She terrorized him and I eventually moved her to my 55 gallon tank. She was much happier in there. I had a Tiger Oscar in there with her and amazingly enough they became best friends. They stuck together. I fed her flakes, shrimp pellets, frozen blood worms and on occasion she even got some night crawlers that the crayfish didn't eat.
I would recommend these fish to anyone who is looking for a beautiful fish full of personality. I would recommend that these fish be kept in a tank of at least 50 gallons due to their size.
