    Ok. What fish/fishes would fit with two parrot cichlids? I want something with bright colors, good size, active, so tank would not seem empty.
    Thanks.

    Do you still have the Raphael catfish? I would ask ladyhobbs I think she has a 55 gallon parrot tank.

    Yes I do have raphael, I'd like to keep him. I'd like to get an opinion so I can exchange my gar and gouramis for something nice.
    Thanks

    For right now I think you will be better off with your 2 blood parrots and Raphael. Do not jump the gun on things. AND NEVER GET SOMETHING EXPECTING YOU WILL GET A BIGGER TANK. I think exchange your gar and gourami's then take it from there do not be afraid to do lots of research. I think most of us here have made mistakes with tanks. But once you fix whatever was wrong I think the worst thing to do is starting adding fish. Do research and I am sure your tank will turn out great. Research the current fish you have first then think of what maybe you could add. The key is research.

    I did not exchange the gar, I sold it locally for $35. I also sold two opaline gouramis: one male and one female. Now three gold gourami females and one opaline male gourami left. I got two parrot cichlids (red and peach) and a gorgeous geo surinamensis, two small severums and a small clown loach.

    Please if you ask for help on this forum please take into account. You are back to square one again. Clown loaches need over a 125 gallon tank need groups of 6. I am not even going to get into details. It is a waste of time to see you hurt fish and not do research.

    Gouramis still needs to go. Like ALL of them. And of course, you even bought fish that is not recommended in your tank. As es already mentioned, clown loaches needs to have a school of at least 6 (more the better). And because clowns do get up to 8 inches long, you do not have room for them in your tank.

    Severums might be ok with blood parrots, but no idea about the geophagus.

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

    Are you a troll?

    Troll behaviour:

    Step 1- ask for help with an oddly/badly stocked tank
    Step 2 - get everyone to take the time to try and help you
    Step 3 - assure everyone your going to do the right thing
    Step 4 - get more fish to make your tank even more absurdly stocked.

    So going by my judgement you tick all the boxes. So either you don't really care what everyone has suggested and will continue to stumble through fishkeeping (with the detrimental effects on the poor fish). Or you are simply trolling.

    Have a nice day
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Honestly Loach was an impulse buy. I'll take him back on Sunday and exchange to something else. I'm not a troll. I'll post pics on Sunday after exchange.

    I will just bring back the loach and get some flake food instead. No more adding fish to my 55.
    I got a small 10 gal tank, present to my mom and upgrade from 5 gal. Here what I have in it: 6 1" neon tetras, one electric glow fish 1.5", one 2" neon green tetra and one 1" glass pleco (not sure of it's name). Mom really wants a dojo loach. Is there enough room for one?
