What do you mean by pump? Like just a pump? That won't filter the water they are usully used for sumps.

Good for you going through all this for your fish. Some people just don't care.

the way i look at it is the healthier the fish, the better they look. i dont want my fish looking bad or unwell. let alone them actually being ill. as much as there very decrotive in my living room, there still my lil dudes in a fish tank, and deserve good well being aswell.

Your tank is a 75 gallon right? What filter do you have on it now? I suggest the aquacear 110. It filters 500gph and keeps your water looking perfect.

My other issues with blood parrots aside, I'm not sure how well they'd fare in a tank full of mbuna. They're generally pretty shy fish, so they could very well get pushed around quite a bit. Convicts are pretty nasty for the most part, so he should be able to hold his own.

As was already pointed out, you need to be very careful how you feed them as your American cichlids need a protein-heavy diet while the mbuna need mostly vegetable matter but both groups of fish will be really enthusiastic about eating...well, everything.
