Also my profile is out of date. Right now I have a .5G, 55G, 29G and a 10G. In the 10G I have 43 fry. In 29G I have 2 blood parrots, had 2 electric yellow labs in 29G because level in my 55G were bad but having sit in 55G right now bagged and doing what you told me. Also I got a jack Dempsey and some platys .

Fishie,

I know you like all those fish, but please...please...do not put BPs with yellow labs. And do not put yellow labs with platies. And do not put JDs with either BPs, yellow labs, or platies. You just do not have a big enough tank and until you get enough room to house all those fish you want they will not do good in a 29 or 55 Gallon tank together.

All I would suggest is get a 55 G with the 2BPs and leave the platies in the 29G and call it a day.

10g is platy fry?
29g has 2 parrots, a JD, platys and 2 labs?
55g empty (please refresh my memory as to what I told you to do...)
Did I read that correctly?

Yes!!!^^^
You need to stop buying fish without thinking it through. I know you are trying and have been asking advise but you don't give all the info needed to give correct advise.

Ok so fish in cycling with the labs in the 55. got it!

I'm going to suggest (you won't like it) that you rehome the JD and the labs. They just won't work with your current set ups and fish.
Put the parrots in the 55 (they will need even bigger in the future) and the platys in the 29. Then once your all sorted and the fish are in proper sized tanks you can think about getting the labs OR JD.

Sorry for interrupting, but I found my BGJD at a LFS. I guess I was just lucky.

Um I thought platies and blood parrots get along. I have a lot of hiding spots if that helps them any I might go to lps this Friday. What it I get 2 20G and seprate platys and jacks Dempsey?

That won't work. The JD needs a bigger tank than a 20g. How many platys to you have? The BP are going to be too big for the 29 and the 55.
