Hi friends,

Yesterday I added four Tiger Barbs and 12 neons. I had 2 blood parrots, two yoyo loaches, 1 common pleco and 4 albino corys(from 8 to 4).

As put my new members they were ok in the water, but one of my parrots was harrasing the group of neons, but till night before I went to sleep there were 12 neons.

After waking up in the morning none of the neons were found anywhere in the tank. So sad incident.

After that happend I found parrots will eat anyting that’s fits in their mouth.

So late realization.

Now next week I am going to put 6 indian glass fish.

Hope they will survive........

So... what do you think? Please leave me a comment or give me a


  • johnarthur: Parrot cichlids are probably better kept in their own aquarium. By nature they are aggressive, and they can get large. The glass fish you mentioned is sometimes injected with a dye to make it more colorful.
  • Sam.K.Ghosh: Thanks John.
    If I found glass fish which are dyed then what is the main concern, because most of the glass fishes are found at the market are dyed.
    Please clarify.
  • johnarthur: When being injected, many of the fish die, and the dye often fades. Some aquarists consider the process inhumane, and others object to the genetic engineering of animals used as pets or food. Of course, most food animals and pets are the result of genetic manipulation through selective breeding. Flowerhorn and parrot cichlids are laboratory created hybrids, and glowfish take a gene from a marine creature. Where do we draw the line?
  • Sam.K.Ghosh: As far as I know goldfishes are also hybrid. So it’s very difficult to draw a line!
