Opinions please

I currently have a 49 gallon with one bolivian ram,one blood parrot that is still a jeuvinile(maybe 4 inches his blacks beginning to turn orange) and a bristle nose pleco. I was wonder if anyone has advice on another tankmate, it's a high tank so I'm sure that may limit me as far as another cichlid goes, I'm open to anything Preferably another cichlid or atleast a non dither fish. I thought about doing some rainbows as dithers but not sure if my tank is long enough and if they will eat all the food before it gets down to the bottom. The parrot is still in his shy stage but finally beginning to come out more often he doesn't seem to give the ram any problems. Any suggestions are appreiecited I'll try to post some pics if I can figure it out thanks

Harlequin rasboras would work along with most species of tetra. Blood parrots tend to leave them alone, although some care must be taken.

What are your exact tank dimensions, L x W x H.

To put load pictures, click on "Go advanced" below the message box.
Top line to the right of the smiley face, there is a paperclip.
Click on that and it will allow you to upload pictures.

If the pictures are too big, you can either resize them, load them them to a free hosting site such as photobucket and then directly link them using the url of the picture.

You can also add pictures of your tank, using the Aquarium Log.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

I would add another ram or two.

I've herd if I have three the other two will kill of the third one ad I'm not sure if mines a male or female what happens if there's two females or two males? I don't wanna get multiple pairs because I'm worried they will develop territories and not leave the parrot with it's own and there will be more aggression
