    Well,how about taking out the blood parrot,maybe the convicts.But convicts do live in a variety of habitats in central america,one is freshwater mountain lakes that are very much like the water parameters as african rift lakes.Not to mention convicts and jewels for that matter are tough as an old pair of leather boots,and could handle mbuna aggression.I just wouldn't like to picture(In my head)a very personable blood parrot,with it's deformed physique,having to put up with fast swimming, aggressive mbuna.The tank is definately large enough to house more fish.

    I agree with skull on the parrot, for sure. They are very social fish and like to be with their own kind, too. Not sure what size this spare tank is, tho. I have 5 in a tank together and they're like a pack of puppies.

    If those convicts are a mated pair, everything will pay if they spawn. They are junk yard dogs with their young and not afraid to attack Oscars.

    South and central American and African cichlids speak a different "language" when it comes to territorial and dominance issues. I agree with what everyone is telling you about separating them. They also have different needs.

    I would move the convicts and the parrot. I think the jewel will be ok with the rest of them. I would also add another parrot depending on the tank size.
