The aquarium setup is one of the most important factors when discussing the care of blood parrots -- just like other aquarium fish species. Due to their large size, you'll want nothing smaller than a 50-gallon aquarium, bigger for more than one blood parrot. Use a soft substrate, such as sand, at the bottom of the tank. You'll also want to provide these sometimes shy cichlids with a variety of hiding places such as large rocks and bogwood. They also prefer live plants in the tank -- but use them in pots as the blood parrots may damage the root systems of your aquarium plants.

I once rescued a parrot cichlid that was about to die. I found him in a pet shop with a bunch of other parrot cichlids. This particular parrot was the weakest one in the tank and the others were picking on it profusely. His mouth was deformed and his tail was severely shredded. There was a fungus growing where pieces of his tail were missing. I took him home and nursed him back to health in my quarantine tank. Once the fungus was gone and his tail healed back to normal, I let him live in the big aquarium with the rest of the cichlids. He was one of the bigger fish in this fish tank at the time. There was a convict, flowerhorn, peacock, and red jewel cichlid. It was a fairly new aquarium setup, and before I had stocked the cichlids in the tank, there were only a few bottom feeders. The parrot got used to being around other fish again and started to come out of hiding more and more often. Eventually he and the flowerhorn teamed up to rule the whole aquarium. Now the parrot cichlid and the are the two biggest fish in the aquarium. The parrot is the king of the tank and he is living his life as happy as can be.

I just thought I'd mention this again, since it's that time of year again!
During the summer, especially when it's over 90F, there are a lot of power outages. It's good to be prepared, especially if you are going on vacation. In my experience the fish can survive overnight but just barely, if there is no oxygenation. It is very risky.
We put 2 battery powered bubblers on each tank. One would probably be enough for a small tank, but two provides a backup. The ones we use only turn on when the power cuts out. They take 2 D batteries each, but they last for at least 12-18 hours.

You will need 1 check valve for each pump
to keep all the water from siphoning out of the tank when the bubbler is off.
You will also need plenty of airline

and an airstone for each pump.

To keep the airline and airstone down at the bottom, we thread the tubing through the hole of the tiniest sized terracotta flower pot.
So a single setup will look like this:
1. battery powered airpump - taped to the top or side of the aquarium. plug it into a power outlet.
2. One piece of airline attached to air pump on one end, with checkvalve on other end (pointing in the correct direction! Be sure to consult packaging)
A second piece of airline attached to other side of checkvalve, threaded through tiny flowerpot, with airstone on end. This is the end that goes in the tank!
