Can a blood parrot cichlid be with glofish?

I have a 30 gallon with 3 tetras and 3 barb glofish. Would a blood parrot cichlid be ok with them as a showcase fish?

I understand that, I am just making sure it won’t eat the other fish.

I would never recommend a fish with 10" potential in a 30 gallon tank.

If I made the tank larger would the glofish and cichlid work?

Never can tell, usually if it fits in a cichlids mouth they'll probably eat it. Blood parrots are goofy and slow so it may be ok, may not though.

I agree totally. But they have that goofy deformed mouth, so that will prob inhibit them catching to much live prey

They are just trying to blow you a kiss after multiple bee stings to the face.

Haha! That's a great analogy of the way they look!
