Parrot cichlis and other hybrids

Have kept parrot cichlids for years not and personally I love them I have got 2 at the moment and think they are great fish.
They are very interactive and interested in what's going on everywhere in and out of the tank and they all develop very individual characters and personalities.
Has anyone else kept these fish Or any other hybrid?

I have a couple in my 55 gallon tank. Very cool and personable fish. One of them is very moody though. Most of the time it gets along just fine with the other, but then it seems to just get ticked off and chases it all over the tank. Also when I have my arm in the tank doing some sort of maintenance, it is very inquisitive as to what I'm up to. It will come up and peck at my hands and then swim around my arm. It will sometimes even rub up against me as it passes by. The other just chills most of the time, swimming gracefully around the tank.

My husband and I have 6 parrots between us. They are like puppy dogs in a fish tank. I just adore them. Their personalities can't be beat.

I kept blood parrots a long time ago and loved them, maybe I'll get some more in the future once I get my hands on a bigger tank again
