Hey how you doing. Thanks for welcoming me it is good to be here. So I have a 75 gallon tank with 2 bloodparrots, 2 firemouths, and a school of 9 albino buebos aires tetras. I was wondering could I add more schooling fish or more cichlids.

Hello Shaun, welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. Which part of Canada (I'm in BC)?

I would not add more to your 75g; while the cichlid species mentioned are relatively peaceful, they are still cichlids and the Parrots attain 10+ inches. FYI, we have fish profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top; the BP isn't included yet, but the others are.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
