    I just rechecked, turnes out all three gold gouramis are female, one, smaller one, opaline one is also a female and two other large opaline gouramis are males. So the ratio is ok, 2 females per one male. What do you think?

    One more question. If I sell the gar and all gouramis, what fish are compatible with two parrot cichlids?

    Blood parrots you mean? I've had mine with platies, tetra's, an angelfish, firemouth cichlids, silver dollars.......you name it. Of all the fish I've had so far, these are my very favorite. Do NOT buy any that have been dyed. You don't see them much but they're still out there in a few shops. Males are infertile so you won't be having a problem with babies all over the place.

    That ratio is better than all males, but to be honest they will still all fight, as I said it was the female of my gouramis which was the most violent. Cramped conditions like yours will only aggravate their territorialness.

    I don't see why your asking now about blood parrots. I've still not heard you say that your going to rehome gars or gouramis. Everyone has provided great info, experience and opinions but to me it sounds like the answers aren't what you want to hear.

    No one is going to say 'go for it add more to your tank'.

    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    I think he was saying that, if he gets rid of all the gouramis and the gar, he would be interested in getting a setup with parrot cichlids.

    Definitely don't add anything until the others are rehomed though.

    Thanks everyone for advice. I put my gouramis and a gar in classified section. Let me know if someone is interested.

    Try to do a trade with the fish store or even a partial trade. You have to remember that they are also doing you a favor and they may not offer you anything but will take your fish. Or give you a credit.

    Classifieds here will do you no good unless you know all about shipping fish.

    I spoke to guys working in my local Petland and they said they will take my gar for half the value or do a trade for half the value. Now what should I trade for?
    I want good size, colorful, active fish that is compatible with Blood Parrot Cichlids. What can you recommend?

    What about a tiger Oscar? Will it be ok with parrot cichlids and a Raphael catfish?
