"Hello, I have a 55 gal. tank complete with heater, filter, large rock structure, a rock with a hole in it, a few plants and drift wood. I recently bought a blood parrot and when I first put him/her in the tank it was pretty active, but I had another cichlid in with it and the cichlid was very rough with the parrot. I have since removed the cichlid to another tank. However the parrot is still hiding. I've found the hiding spot recently and I'm concerned as the fish seems to like to float sideways under a rock ledge so that it is nearly completely hidden from the rest of the tank. I really have to look to find it. Is this behavior normal for a young BP in a new environment? and will it become more active as it gets used to the new environment? I just got the fish yesterday, so I'm still not sure of its normal activities or if its male or female so advice on sexing the fish would also be very helpful. Any advice is welcome, and thanks all in advance for the help."
