Question on Parrots, nicaraguensis

Recommended Posts

Do they eat smaller fish and to what size would they eat? Would they eat my Neon Rainbows?

Thanks. smile.gif

Edit: I just found a site that says they will eat anything smaller than a female guppy ... now, I just have to look up what that size is ...

If anyone has had any experience with keeping other fish with these guys I'd be interested to know it. I've been growing up a group of them and now it looks like I have a mated pair, which I'm thinking about moving inside to a display tank.

I have only kept them with other cichlids but I would think that any dither fish 5cm or more probably wouldn’t be considered a potential meal for an adult parrot.

Note the word ‘probably’ though! wink2.gif

they come from nicaragua were they feed on weed and snails...they aren't known for fish eating ,,but any fish will feed on what is available.....the females develope a beautiful blue face and the males get a golden sheen to them....they need lots of caves and a good pellet food, preferably one with a vegitable base
