Blood Red Parrot Stress and being bullied
Iím new to this forum trying to get some pointers on my pair of blood red parrots one I believe is a male and one is a female.
I have had them for about a month and they have been in a community 29gallon tank yes I know a 29 gallon is on the smaller side for 2 blood red they are babies right now and I am in the works on upgrading to a 75 gallon or to 150 in the next month or so.
The community tank has a variety of fish including mollies, tetras, African cichlid, Cory catfish, pleco, and everyone seems to be getting along besides the two blood parrots the male seems to be very aggressive to the female and will chase her around the tank and ram her into corners. She is turning black on her body and her fins which I am thinking is due to stress from the other red parrot she is swimming and eating but hides a lot I do have another tank set up and has been running for a month or so should I separate the two and if so should I pull out the sick female red parrot to get healthy again or the male aggressive one?
