New to Cichlid Keeping

Post by FLReeferGirl » Fri Feb 28, 2014 3:22 pm

Hi! I am brand new to the world of cichlid keeping. I have a 75 gallon reef tank that I love. My father passed away a few months ago and I told my mom I would take care of his cichlids and bring the tank to my house. He has 2 blood red parrots, 1 jack dempsey, & 1 convict currently in a what I want to say 37 gallon tank, knowing he would have to upgrade one day. What I'm wondering is, is a 55 gallon big enough for these 4 fish? They are currently around 3+ in long. And if this is big enough...should I keep it only at these 4? Thanks in advance!
