Hello from west virginia!!
 
Hello from west virginia..I thought i posted this once but i dont think it went through. I am going to make this one shorter. I have 4 parrot fish that i raised up as babies. (never want to do that again:roll:..)

I have a 10 gallon tank but will be getting a floor size when they get bigger. We also have a parrotlet bird, maltese dog, and outside cat.

When i bought the 2 parrot fish at the pet store they said they were very hard to breed or whatever they do.. lol

One month later wow!!!! what a mess. I had a yellow one, and a pink one. These are white with some pink in them.

If anyone knows much about these type of fish let me know. I do know you can not put other fish in with them, but i was thinking of a blue grab and one of the poop eaters.

I always had goldfish before and thought i would try tropical fish, wouldn't you know this would have happened to me:roll:..

The fish are doing fine and looking good. 2 of them are about one inch long and the other 2 are smaller.

I love this forum and know i am going to learn so much from it..

thanks so much for any info one can give.

Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

It may help to narrow down the fish you have; are they parrot cichlids, like the one below?

Don't think they look like that byron. I had pale and female (which i didn't want they to have babies) but they did. The adults were pink and yellow where they had put dye into them i think they said.

I had 4 parrot fish to live and i kept them. They are doing fine. They have been with me since April and are not very big. I have 2 that are about an inch and 2 that are smaller.

Mine are parrot fish but don't seem to look exactly like yours.

unfortunately dyed fish is a possibility. is there anyway you can post a picture?
if your thinking a pleco to eat poop it very much so doesnt, infact they produce a large amount of poop themselves.

welcome to the forum.
