Other cichlids. Depends on your tank size.

It's helpful if you put what the thread is about in the subject line not just help please. for example "Parrot Fish Tank mates" That may spark the interest of people who keep parrot fish. I don't keep parrots so I am not much of a help.

Hopefully that will help you out. Unfortunately I know nothing about Parrot fish.

In a 30g if you want an angel fish, I would put some neons, corys, maybe a Molly or a few platys

I honestly cannot recommend any cichlids in a 30g. I'm new to cichlids for sure and the only ones I have looked into need a 55+

You could get dwarf cichlids. They don't need much. Also I have my parrot in a 65 gallon. In a community. Has done great for 2/3 years already. Awesome lively fish. But if you want one. You need a bit of an upgrade.
