i need to know what types of fish can live with parrot cichlids

Depends, what size tank do you have? Filtration? Im sure someone can help you better but this type of information is needed when asking such questions.

Definatly need to no tank size. The minimum for one is a 29g, so if its less htne that nothing and it needs upgrading, and if its more it depends on how big the tank is.

I would not put one in a tank smaller than a 55g to make him comfortable. He would go with a severum or like firemouths.

Could you please tell me can you keep weather loach with malawi cichlids?

i dont think so. mainly with malawi cichlids you can only add syndontis catfish

getting back to the original topic, BP's will get along with anything that wont fit in their mouths, i have mine with serpae tetras and other community fish

55gallon, make him at home with decent filtration, depending on the size of the parrot, you could go with 10" oscars, I've seen them together at my lfs. But they have to be roughly the same size, or one will eat the other.
