    Question Red Parrot Fish

    0 Not allowed!
    My 75 gallon tank has finished its fishless cycle. On Monday I am getting 3 baby red parrot fish. They are about an 1.5 inches. I was thinking of getting a pleco for a tanmate, but I was wonder what other fish I can get instead of the pleco?

    Skip the plec,just poop machines really. Have you considered making the tank parrot fish dominant? In a 75 gal you could keep 8 of these wonderful fish. I have a 55 gal with 6 of them and 4 silver dollars and its my favorite tank out of them all.

    I have 5 in my 55 gallon with 3-bristlenose.

    I consider my tank stocked full. Smaug has some of those of the smaller species but 4 of mine are a pretty good size. One is my runt and he's about 5".

    But they are wonderful fish to keep with tetra's.

    Thanks great. I was hoping to make it a parrot tank, but wasn't sure how many was too many so i figured i would get 3 to be safe. Now I am going to get 6!!! I would still like another kind of fish or 2. How about 2 pearl gourami? if I was the only one veiwing the tank i would be happy with just parrots but i have to keep everyone happy and they would like just a little variety.

    Research silver dollars. They are a very pretty fish and look very interesting when they reach full size. They have a good temperment to be kept with bp as well. 2 of my bp are 7 inches,2 of them about 4 or 5 inches and 2 of them are a small 3 inch variety. My 55 is overstocked but I do huge water changes.
