I have a 12” male BP, someone has now spiked my interest on what he may be a cross of.
He suggest a Synspilum x Midas.

Does anyone have an idea?
I currently have a female who has laid (not the first time either of my 2 females have laid eggs) and it’s now day 4 of them not molding or turning white...hoping they’re viable.
These photos don’t do his size justice, mostly just for shape.

I’d say it’s fully stocked as is, once the fish get full grown that won’t leave much room for the parrot (more realistically the parrot would start harassing others).

Way overstocked at adult size. Plus, parrots get more aggressive as they age.

Severums 8+ inches
Parrots 6-10+ inches

Not enough room or water volume. Minus substrate and deco you're probably more at 55-57 gallons. And that's assuming the parrots will all get along later.

"Gallons" for these tanks are measured by outside dimensions. I really wish manufacturers would give real gallons as well.

I really wouldn’t add any more cichlids to that tank, but rams, kribs, and apistos all have color.
If you want anything extra look into larger tetras or livebearers.
