As mentioned in earlier post I promised some pics. This is my 55 gal that I resealed earlier and set up as a Blood Red Parrot tank. I had some live plants originally but these guys were always rooting them so went to fake. Still not happy with setup but getting close. Beside the Blood Reds are Corydoras Melini (False Bandits) and Clown Plecos.

No, DL they don't want petted yet like the Vid you posted but I am getting close to them eating out of my hand. Thes guys are normally very skiddish unti they get closer to maturity. If I make suden moves they dive for cover, and take awhile to come out again but are beginning to trust me and not as bad as they once were. Very common I read.

Looks great, @Ron! ThumbsUp  At one time I might not have been a big fan of this kind of set up but now I say, go for it!  Parrot cichlids are here to stay and they seem to be happy and healthy, whenever I see them in a set up.  Yours look really nice, inquisitive and friendly. Keeping a few of one color really makes a big statement.  Hope Marty is enjoying them!

Nice looking tank Ron. Red Parrots have a friendly looking face. It almost looks like they are smiling. I think they are an attractive ornamental fish... Cool

They are so cute, Ron, truly! I like how you've got them in a group, and they show up well against the background, which is fab. Lovely setup.  ThumbsUp
