Advice for a centerpiece
We recently lost our blood parrot cichlid and are thinking about a good replacement. We have a 46 gallon bowfront with five boosemani rainbows and one electric blue acara cichlid.
The thing we loved about the parrot cichlid is that it would interact with us. When we came near the aquarium, it would always be right there greeting us. And it would eat from my hand. The rainbows are not like that at all and the acara is somewhat shy. I do wonder if the acara might come out of his shell now that the larger parrot fish is gone.
Looking for suggestions for another single larger fish that would have the pet-like personality similar to our parrot. BTW, I will never own another blood parrot cichlid for a few reasons, even though we really loved its personality. It was prone to swim bladder issues and had difficulty eating. When I purchased it, I didn't know that it is a hybrid species.
I'm thinking about a single angelfish but worry about aggression. I've never owned an angel before, but assume there are good reasons for their popularity.
Thanks in advance!
